The Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation at Technische Universität Wien has recently developed a new scheduling tool in C++ called VieSched++ as part of the Vienna VLBI and Satellite Software (VieVS). VieSched++ features an elaborate backward fill-in mode for optimizing the number of observations and runs multiple versions of the same schedule in a fast batch mode using different optimization criteria and parameters. Large scale Monte-Carlo simulations with VieVS are then used for selecting the best schedule for the purpose of the session within this sample. In particular, the schedules can be optimized for the given network, source list, observing mode and scientific goal. VieSched++ already successfully used for scheduling T2, INT3, EUR&D, AUA and AUM sessions. We present those schedules and show how they were optimized by simulating millions of VLBI experiments. Scheduling multiple versions of a single experiment and selecting one of these schedules by analyzing simulations lead to a significant improvement in the quality of the result.
