Abstract
This paper introduces COMIREM (Continuous, Mixed-Initiative Resource Management), a system for collaborative, incremental development of plans and schedules in dynamic, resource-constrained domains. COMIREM is designed to provide web-based planning and scheduling services and is capable of interacting with a variety of interfacing and visualization tools using a standard Internet browser. The objective is to deliver a wide range of mixed-initiative problem-solving capabilities (e.g., specification of activities and requirements, commitment/de-commitment of resources, manipulation of problem constraints) through lightweight plug-in applications that can be selected according to present circumstances. We present a summary of the current functionality and an outline of the developing system architecture.

Keywords
collaborative planning and scheduling, lightweight web-based planning and scheduling components, incremental mixed-initiative resource management
