Abstract

We usually think of plans as linear sequences of actions. This is because plans are usually executed one step at a time. But plans themselves are not constrained by physical limitations of linearity. This paper describes a new information structure, called the procedural net, that represents a plan as a partial ordering of action with respect to time.
