A scheduling optimization solution is in many ways still a complex and "exotic" function that seldomly finds its way into the daily practice of the industrial plant floor. Scheduling is too often seen as something decoupled and theoretical that requires highlevel experts for using and maintaining it. In this paper we discuss some of the hurdles for deploying scheduling solutions. Some needs for improvements are identified both in academia and industry and by addressing the main pain points it can be seen that with a common mindset the complexity of scheduling can be lowered significantly.
