  • What is Planning?
    • “Planning is the process of thinking about the activities required to create a desired goal on some scale” [Wikipedia]
  • We take a more pragmatic view – planning is a flexible approach for taking complex decisions:
    • decide about the schedule of a production line;
    • decide about the movements of an elevator;
    • decide about the flow of paper through a copy machine;
    • decide about robot actions.
  • By “flexible” we mean:
    • the problem is described to the planning system in some generic language;
    • a (good) solution is found fully automatically;
    • if the problem changes, all that needs to be done is to change the description.
  • We look at methods to solve any problem that can be described in the language chosen for the particular planning system.
