Autonomy and decentralized decision making in logistics: new ideas, technological innovations, enhanced decision support, and initial applications

Herbert Kopfer, Jörn Schönberger
2011 Logistics Research  
Each temporal subproblem tries to achieve its own short-term goals and concurrently has to beware the long-term goals, which can only be reached by the entirety of the subproblems.  ...  Thus, the coordination process between the subproblems and their superior problem refers to the adjustment of short-term and long-term planning.  ...

Goal-Based Operations: An Overview

Daniel D. Dvorak, Michel D. Ingham, J. Richard Morris, John Gersh
2009 Journal of Aerospace Computing Information and Communication  
The move toward goal-based operations, which has already begun in some space missions, involves changes and opportunities in several places: operational processes and tools, human interface design, planning  ...  Execution based on explicit intent simplifies operator workload by focusing on what to do rather than how to do it.  ...  Another long-term benefit of the ASE project is documentation of the lessons learned, which will certainly be invaluable to future applications of onboard autonomy and GBO.  ...
