A Multiagent Planning Architecture

David E. Wilkins and Karen L. Myers

The Multiagent Planning Architecture (MPA) is a framework for integrating diverse technologies into a system capable of solving complex planning problems. Agents within MPA share well-defined, uniform interface specifications that facilitate integration of new technologies and experimentation with different problem-solving strategies. MPA provides a central repository for storing plan-related information in a shared plan representation, and metalevel agents that control and customize the interactions between other agents. The MPA framework has been validated through its use in developing several large-scale problem-solving systems for Air Campaign Planning.
