Abstract
In this report, we summarize the research performed under ARPA (ARPA) contract F30602-90-C-0119, Flexible Coordination in Resource-Constrained Multi-Agent Domains. The broad goal of this research, which was carried out as part of ARPA/Rome Laboratories Planning Initiative (PI), has been to investigate the use of constraint-based scheduling frameworks and techniques as a basis for more accurate and more flexible decision support at various stages of the military crisis-action planning, deployment and employment process. This work has led to development of a transportation scheduling system called DITOPS, which provides advanced capabilities for construction, analysis and revision of large-scale deployment schedules.

A version of this report also appears as Rome Laboratories Technical Report RL-TR-94-95.
