Nowadays, manufacturers have to share some of their resources with partners due to the competitive economic environment. The management of the availability periods of shared resources causes a problem because it is achieved by the scheduling systems, which assume a local environ- ment where all resources are on the same site. Therefore, distributed scheduling with shared resources is an impor- tant research topic. In this communication, we introduce the architecture and behaviour of DSCEP framework (Dis- tributed, Supervisor, Customer, Environment, and Producer) under shared resources situation with disturbances. We are using a simple example of manufacturing system to illustrate the ability of DSCEP framework to solve the shared resources scheduling problem in complex systems.
