This paper presents a hybrid architecture that facilitates the incur-poration of a case-based planning system as the reasoning motor for a deliberative agent. This architecture makes possible to solve a wide range of problems in terms of agents and multi-agent systems. The problems are resolved in terms of plans, using plans that have already been experienced.
