Abstract:
 This paper introduces multi-strategy planning, which focuses on the selection and combination of different planning methods. Planning is the problem of finding a sequence of actions (operators) that will take an agent from one state (initial state) to a desired state (goal). This problem has gotten considerable attention in artificial intelligence. Unfortunately, theoretical results show that the general planning problem is intractable in complex domains. Therefore, a practical planning system reduce the search space. This reduction of the search space is based on assumptions (so called \emph{planning biases\/}) about the problem such as: the problem order, plan structure, or subgoal hierarchy. Given these assumptions about the task, a \emph{planning strategy\/} exploits the reduction in the search space and searches the resulting search space. Popular examples of planning strategies are means-ends analysis, case-based planning, macro-operators, abstraction hierarchies, and non-linear planning. Planning strategies based on a specific planning bias work well in domains, in which these assumptions are satisfied, but fail if these assumptions are not met. Furthermore, in complex domains it is possible that only parts of a task can be efficiently solved with a given planning method. But for other parts of the tasks, a different planning strategy may be appropriate.
