Abstract: The ALMA Scheduling Subsystem has undergone substantial changes in the last couple of years. As well as a significant re-factoring, we have now implemented the dynamic scheduling framework and algorithm which will be used when the telescope begins full operations. This same framework and algorithm will be used in both the day-to-day running of the online observing software and as part of a simulation tool used by the time allocation committee. As well as an overview of the subsystem, we outline the changes made, the current factors taken into account by the algorithm and future work to be undertaken.
