Optimum-AIV and Planning
- OPTIMUM-AIV is a planner used by the European Space Agency (1994) to
help in the assembly, integration, and verification of spacecraft.
- It generates plans, and monitors their execution.
- Unlike a conventional scheduling tool, it has a knowledgebase which describes the underlying causal links that dictate that the assembly must be undertaken in a particular order.
- Therefore, if a plan fails and has to be repaired, the system can make intelligent decisions about which alternative plans will work and which will not.
- It can engage in hierarchical planning - this involves producing a top-level plan with very little detail, and then turning this into increasingly more detailed lower-level plans.
- It can reason about complex conditions, time, and resources (such as budget constraints).
