Planning Through Stochastic Local Search and Temporal Action Graphs in LPG
This paper focuses on temporal planning, introducing TA-graphs and proposing some techniques to guide the search in LPG using this representation, and shows that these techniques can be very effective. Expand
LPG: A Planner Based on Local Search for Planning Graphs with Action Costs
A corner bracket for use in mounting and locating a mounting bracket for a window covering including an inverted L-shaped mounting plate having a plurality of preformed slots and holes for receivingExpand
Plan Stability: Replanning versus Plan Repair
This work presents arguments to support the claim that plan stability is a valuable property, and proposes an implementation, based on LPG, of a plan repair strategy that adapts a plan to its new context. Expand
An Approach to Temporal Planning and Scheduling in Domains with Predictable Exogenous Events
This paper proposes an approach to planning in temporal domains with exogenous events that happen at known times, imposing the constraint that certain actions in the plan must be executed during some predefined time windows which integrates constraint-based temporal reasoning into a graph-based planning framework using local search. Expand
An approach to efficient planning with numerical fluents and multi-criteria plan quality
An incremental approach to automated planning with numerical fluents and multi-criteria objective functions for pddl numerical planning problems and defines the numerical action graph (NA-graph) representation for numerical plans and proposes some new local search techniques using this representation.

Fast Plan Adaptation through Planning Graphs: Local and Systematic Search Techniques
A domain-independent method for plan adaptation that combines two techniques that can be used either for solving a plan adaptation task or as a preprocessing for reducing the number of inconsistencies in the input plan. Expand
Generating diverse plans to handle unknown and partially known user preferences
This paper proposes the usage of different measures to capture the quality of plan sets and investigates various heuristic approaches to generate sets of plans in accordance with these measures, and presents empirical results that demonstrate the promise of these methods. Expand
Domain Independent Approaches for Finding Diverse Plans
It is described how two representative state-of-the-art domain independent planning approaches - one based on compilation to CSP, and the other based on heuristic local search - can be adapted to produce diverse plans. Expand
LPG-TD : a Fully Automated Planner for PDDL 2 . 2 Domains
Like the previous version of LPG, the new version is based on a stochastic local search in the space of particular “action graphs” derived from the planning problem specification. In LPG-TD, thisExpand
