  The new Accelerator Control System for GSI/FAIR is now being used productively for the GSI accelerator facility. As the central component for online beam orchestration, the Beam Scheduling System (BSS) is situated between the FAIR Settings Management System and the FAIR timing system. Besides device settings, the Settings Management System provides timing schedules for beam production. The primary purpose of the BSS is to define which of the beam schedules are executed by the timing system, how often and in which order. To provide runtime decisions in pre-planned execution options (e.g. skipping of a particular beam), it processes external signals like user input, experiment requests or beam prohibits provided by the interlock system. More recently, advanced features have been added that allow for dynamic execution control required by storage ring mode features such as breakpoints, repetitions, skipping and manipulations. This contribution gives an overview of the Beam Scheduling System including its interfaces.
