Key points: An assumption is necessary to allow the unit to move forward with planning.

Book review: "Assumption-based Planning" by James A. Dewar Introduction. Assumption-based Planning (ABP) is the standard work in how to reduce the effect of unintended consequences when planning.

Although the technique has its roots in high-level strategic activities such as military planning, it is also directly applicable to systems.The purpose of the paper is to introduce a new approach of planning called Assumption-Based Planning.

This approach is a very interesting way to devise a planner based on a multi-agent system in which the production of a global shared plan is obtained by conjecture/refutation cycles.

Contrary to classical approaches, our contribution relies on the agents reasoning that leads to the production.In this paper we define the notion of assumption-based planning (ABP). Assumption-based planning endeavors to find a middle-ground between conformant and classical planning wherein the planner computes a set of calculated assumptions about aspects of the world that support the gen-eration of a plan.

Assumption-based planning is well-suitedCited by:
