Abstract

Envelopes are a form of decision rule for monitoring plan execution. We describe one type, the DP envelope, that draws its decisions from a look-up table computed off-line by dynamic programming. Based on an abstract model of agent progress, DP envelopes let a developer approach execution monitoring as a problem independent of issues in agent design. We discuss the application of DP envelopes to a small transportation planning simulation, and discuss the issues that arise in an empirical analysis of the results.
