Planning and Learning in a Design Domain: The Problems Plan Interactions

An important issue in planning is the problem of dealing with goal and plan interactions that arise when planning for multiple goals. The current solutions to this problem have all been within a paradigm of planning for individual goals separately, (using domain specific planning knowledge) and then dealing with whatever interactions arise upon merging them, (using domain independent knowledge of plan interactions). This paradigm, unfortunately, has resulted in planners that lack a vocabulary which would allow them make use of their abstract knowledge of plan interactions when planning for problematic multiple goal situations that have already been encountered and planned for.
