Abstract

When planning in uncertain domains, it can be of great benefit if the planner is aware of the nature of the actions that it is dealing with. This paper investigates the use of statistical distributions of resource usage at the planning stage, and how these can be exploited to form robust plans. These statistical distributions are not always simple | they are a by-product of the execution process, formed by sub-programs that are used internally by the executive to accomplish the primitive action in hand. Techniques of forming these distributions are discussed in this paper, and methods for execution of such plans are also investigated and presented.
