An Approach to Temporal Planning and Scheduling in Domains with Predictable Exogenous Events

A. Gerevini, A. Saetti, I. Serina
2006 The Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research  
When actions have durations, handling such temporal constraints adds an extra difficulty to planning.  ...  We propose an approach to planning in these domains which integrates constraint-based temporal reasoning into a graph-based planning framework using local search.  ...  The work of Ivan Serina was in part carried out at the Department of Computer and Information Sciences of the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, UK), and was supported by Marie Curie Fellowship N HPMF-CT  ...

O-Plan: The open planning architecture

Ken Currie, Austin Tate
1991 Artificial Intelligence  
Temporal and resource constraint handling, shown to be valuable in realistic domains by Deviser 52], has been extended to provide a powerful search space pruning method.  ...  The algorithms for this are incremental versions of Operational Research methods. O-Plan has integrated ideas from or and AI in a coherent and constructive manner.  ...  In this case scheduling takes the form of adding to an existing set of temporal constraints which can berepresented without resorting to disjunction.  ...
