We introduce Schedulater: A tool that visualizes production data and predictions to help plant operators schedule their tasks. The tool visualizes streaming data from the production system and a predictive model based on first principles. We follow a design study approach, collaborating with engineers and operators. We describe the tool, key tasks of operators, design goals, and discuss challenges in integrating predictions in the context of streaming data.
