This paper presents the on-going work using a formal approach for the design of Interactive Multimedia Documents (IMDs) based on the RT-LOTOS formal description technique. The present work extends this approach proposing the scheduling of IMDs based on a simple and operational model obtained as a result from the reachability analysis. One important breakthrough of this model is that it is a scheduling graph that provides the control of the occurrence of non-deterministic events, such as user

Further on, some scheduling policies are also presented based on this model. Finally, we introduce some characteristics of the player actually available for the presentation of IMDs based on this new model.
