The present directions of research and development in the area of planning and scheduling are reviewed, and the details are given of KNOW-PLAN, a knoledge-based planning system currently being developed. The latter is a planning system that integrates computer aided design (CAD) technology with artificial intelligence technology to simulate the process of constructing a facility interactively and graphically on the screen of a graphics workstation. The sequence of execution for project activities is generated based on geometric data and knowledge rules. The geometric data are retrieved from a 3-dimensional computer model of the facility. The different knowledge rules are defined within a knowledge-based system.
