This paper presents an action guided constraint satisfaction technique for planning problem. Different from the standard algorithms which are almost domain independence and cannot reflect the characteristics of the planning progress, we discuss how the action rules in planning act in constraint satisfaction problems. Based on the conclusion, an action directed constraint is proposed to guide the variable selected procedure in constraint satisfaction problems. Through theoretical analysis, this technique is prior an order of magnitude in variable select procedure over the ordinary heuristic technique and can be used in constraint-programmed planning problem generally. With the simulation experiments it shows that the algorithm with action guided constraint can effectively reduce the number of constraint checks during the planning procedure and has a better performance on total running time over the standard version.
