Abstract : The broad goal of this research, which was carried out as part of the ARPA/Rome Laboratory Planning Initiative, has been to investigate the use of constraint-based scheduling frameworks and techniques as a basis for more accurate and more flexible decision support as various stages of the military crisis-action planning, deployment and employment process. These investigations have led to the development of DITOPS, a constraint-based, transportation scheduling prototype with facilities to support decomposition and distributed decision-making.
