Abstract

Planning domains often feature subproblems such as route planning and resource handling. Using static domain analysis techniques, we have been able to identify certain commonly occurring subproblems within planning domains, making it possible to abstract these subproblems from the overall goals of the planner and deploy specialized technology to handle them in a way integrated with the broader planning activities. Using two such subsolvers our hybrid planner, stan4, participated successfully in the Fifth International Conference on Artificial Intelligence Planning and Scheduling (AIPS'00) planning competition.
