The increasing number of companies that change their shop floor organisation towards group and team work causes the need for new technical aids that are suitable for groups. Until today the cooperation and coordination of teams was supported by software only on office level by so called groupware. The short term scheduling seems to be a promissing field of application for improved forms of decission support on shop floor level in order to increase productivity. Latest research about the tack knowledge of workers for the task of shop floor control shows, that all members of a production team have their individual implicit knowledge. These pieces of knowledge have to be combined in order to optimise the production. A decision room with a new scheduling system is suggested to fulfill the demands mentioned above.
