Abstract : This is the final report for a research project which focused on artificial intelligence planning systems. The research investigated methods for representing, generating, and executing hierarchical plans that contain parallel actions. Reasoning about actions is critical to many important areas including automatic planning systems, expert consultation systems, and real-time control of robotic systems. This report describes progress in planning, including efficient techniques for generating hierarchical and parallel plans in certain domains. This work was performed using SIPE (System for Interactive Planning and Execution Monitoring) which was developed in part under this contract.
