This paper describes features of the OMP problem solver that integrates planning features in a constraint based scheduling framework. The rationale for this integration is to express problems going beyond the vision of scheduling as a set of resource productions and consumptions but for also being able to express several kind of causal relations between and behind them. This work describes some steps in the direction of uniformly managing planning as a special case of task scheduling in a constraint-based environment.
