How to model planning and scheduling problems using constraint networks on timelines

Gérard Verfaillie, Cédric Pralet, Michel Lemaître
2010 Knowledge engineering review (Print)  
The CNT framework (Constraint Network on Timelines) has been designed to model discrete event dynamic systems and the properties one knows, one wants to verify, or one wants to enforce on them.  ...  In this article, after a reminder about the CNT framework, we show its modeling power and its ability to support various modeling styles, coming from the planning, scheduling, and constraint programming  ...  With regard to the use of timelines and constraints on timelines to model planning and scheduling problems, this idea is present in many works at the frontier between planning and scheduling (Ghallab  ...

2015 International Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence  
Timeline-based Planning has been successfully applied in several contexts to solve Planning and Scheduling (P&S) problems.  ...  In this regard, it is useful to define quality metrics to evaluate the robustness of flexible timeline-based plans.  ...  Andrea Orlandini is partially supported by the Italian Ministry for University and Research (MIUR) and CNR under the GECKO Project (Progetto Bandiera "La Fabbrica del Futuro").  ...

Spatiotemporal Planning of Construction Projects: A Literature Review and Assessment of the State of the Art

Fabian Ardila, Adel Francis
2020 Frontiers in Built Environment  
Traditional scheduling methods based on activities modeling have become less adapted to this new reality.  ...  These constraints have forced the industry to gradually change by applying more adapted operational processes and contractual models that focus on value and by integrating the design, construction, and  ...  The annealed neural network model merges many features of simulated annealing, while the Hopfield neuronal network is employed to solve the problem.  ...

Distributed management of flexible times schedules

Stephen F. Smith, Anthony Gallagher, Terry Zimmerman
2007 Proceedings of the 6th international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems - AAMAS '07  
We describe an agent architecture for solving this problem that couples two basic mechanisms: (1) a "flexible times" representation of the agent's schedule (using a Simple Temporal Network) and (2) an  ...  Then, as time permits, the core local problem solving infra-structure is used to drive an inter-agent option generation and query process, aimed at identifying opportunities for solution improvement through  ...  Both local and non-local problem solving time is further minimized by the use of a core incremental scheduling procedure.  ...

Timeline-based Planning and Execution with Uncertainty: Theory, Modeling Methodologies and Practice [article]

Alessandro Umbrico
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Each framework relies on its own interpretation of timeline-based planning and therefore it is not easy to compare these systems.  ...  Thus, the objective of this work is to investigate the timeline-based approach to planning by addressing several aspects ranging from the semantics of the related planning concepts to the modeling and  ...  The classical approach to planning relies on a logical characterization of the model that focuses on the causal aspects of the problem to solve.  ...

Airline Crew Scheduling: State-of-the-Art

Balaji Gopalakrishnan, Ellis. L. Johnson
2005 Annals of Operations Research  
Over the last two decades the magnitude and complexity of crew scheduling problems have grown enormously and airlines are relying more on automated mathematical procedures as a practical necessity.  ...  The airline industry is faced with some of the largest scheduling problems of any industry. The crew scheduling problem involves the optimal allocation of crews to flights.  ...  The set-partitioning model is one of the commonly used models for solving the crew pairing problem.  ...

Flexible Timeline-Based Plan Verification [chapter]

A. Cesta, A. Finzi, S. Fratini, A. Orlandini, E. Tronci
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Timeline-Based Planning and Execution Timeline-based planning is an approach to temporal planning [9] where the generated plans are represented by sets of timelines.  ...  A key problem for widening applicability of these techniques is the robust connection between plan generation and execution.  ...  In this work, the use of a model checker is only suggested to obtain a more compact representation and not to verify plan properties.  ...

On Reformulating Planning as Dynamic Constraint Satisfaction [chapter]

Jeremy Frank, Ari K. Jónsson, Paul Morris
2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In thispaper,we discuss the Constraint-BasedInterval Planning(CBIP) paradigm,which can represent planning problems incorporating interval time and resottrces.  ...  In recent years, researchers have reformulated STRIPS planning problems as SAT problems or CSPs.  ...  This models the notion of an attribute maintaining only one state at a time, such as a unit resource which can only be used by a single task at once in a scheduling problem.  ...
