Constructing Belief Networks to Evaluate Plans
Paul Lehner, Christopher Elsaesser, Scott Musman
This paper examines the problem of constructing belief networks to evaluate plans produced by an knowledge-based planner. Techniques are presented for handling various types of complicating plan features. These include plans with context-dependent consequences, indirect consequences, actions with preconditions that must be true during the execution of an action, contingencies, multiple levels of abstraction multiple execution agents with partially-ordered and temporally overlapping actions, and plans which reference specific times and time durations.
