Abstract:

This paper reports the current status of a computer aid to re-planning, the PLANNERS WORKBENCH. Current organizational planning methods support the generation of large, complex configurations of planned activities. However, they do not provide mechanisms for modifying plans in the face of changed assumptions or new environmental conditions. The PLANNERS WORKBENCH would fill this need by recording the considerations made during plan generation--the plan rationale--and providing facilities for exploiting the rationale during re-planning.
