The method resulted from a study of the problem-solving behavior of scientists which showed that design usually consisted of look-up of abstracted plans followed by hierarchical plan-step refinement. The skeletal plan method has been implemented through two generations of problem-solving systems, the second generation involving a… CONTINUE READING
