The problem of heterogeneous production planning and scheduling is presented in this paper. The basic assumption of the study is the “methodology of the practice”, i.e. simple, fast and flexible, enabling to determine whether the given order can be implemented in the system on the basis of meeting or not specified conditions. The case study presented scheduling of the production of refractory materials with KbRS software is presented.
