Planning & Scheduling integration

Our interest for the integration of planning and scheduling dates back to the partecipation in the HSTS project at CMU during 1990 that produced a planner/scheduler for the Hubble Space Telescope. That architecture has evolved in the RAX-PS planner currently used at NASA Ames. A description of the early HSTS is given in:

Some years later we have done some work aimed at formalizing a subset of the HSTS Domain Description Language that differs from classical AI formalization of planning problems because is grounded on modelization taken from control theory. Some results are contained in:

Very recently we have started a more accurate investigation of issues connected with the integration with the study of different planners addressing the problem from different perspectives:
