Abstract : The ARPA/Rome Laboratory Knowledge Based Planning and Scheduling Initiative (ARPI) is an (ARPA) and (RL) sponsored initiative to promote the development of new knowledge-based planning and scheduling technology for use by the military in support of operational planning and scheduling problems. The ARPI Common Prototyping Environment Project was established in order to facilitate the communication of an understanding of military problems to the research community, provide sample data and problems, promote the sharing and reuse of software tools, and ultimately provide a platform of the experimental testing and integration of research products, so that successful technologies could be demonstrated solving operational problems. The CPE team and BBN Systems and Technologies and ISX Corporation was tasked to provide a wide variety of infrastructure services for the initiative, including knowledge representation tools, and assistance in developing integration experiments and software feasibility demonstrations (IFDs).
