Abstract

In this work we concentrate on generating plans that take into account conditional actions. The main idea was to develop an algorithm that extended classical formalisms in a general way. By general way, we mean a flexible formalism that could use any algorithm for classical planning without any change. The result of our efforts was the development of a planner that we called METAPlan. In this paper we describe METAPlan and show some results of its performance.
