MACPlan: A Mixed Initiative Approach to Airlift Planning

Kirsten Y. Kissmeyer and Anne M. Tallant

This paper describes an object-oriented model for a mixed-initiative airlift planning aid. The system provides a workbench of tools that help airlift planners build effective plans faster. The system maintains consistency among objects in its knowledge base by enforcing constraints. Forward-chaining through domain rules is used to identify problems in the routing network. MACPLAN has improved the productivity of airlift planners by an order of magnitude.
