Factored Planning

Brief: Decompose large planning domains, stack others
Jump To: Parent Description

  • Factored planning involves breaking a large planning domain/problem into smaller almost disjoint planning domains/problems, to enable an easier solution. FLP and verber use federated planning to generate and combine smaller domains into a large one. Moreover, with this implementation, we'd like to be able to generate a plan and assert its constraints into other domains/problems. Kind of like the way you pack a car, you put in the big items, then the medium items, then the small items, backtracking when you cannot fit things.
