The O-Plan (the Open PLANning Architecture) Project is exploring issues of coordinated command, planning and control.

The objective of the O-Plan Project is to develop an architecture within which different agents have command (task assignment), planning and execution monitoring roles. Each agent has a structure which separates the following components:

The main contribution of the O-Plan research is to provide a complete vision of a more modular and flexible planning and control system incorporating AI methods.

We have demonstrated our approach on realistic problems related to military logistics. Our approach will have an impact in the following ways:

Within the agent-based O-Plan architecture we have created specific agents to provide a domain-independent general planning and control framework with the ability to embed detailed knowledge of the domain. The system combines a number of techniques: The Scenario
