Artificial intelligence research on automatic planning could result in a new class of management aids to reduce the cost of constructing the Space Station, and would have economically important spinoffs to terrestrial industry as well. Automatic planning programs could be used to plan and schedule launch activities, material deliveries to orbit, construction procedures, and the use of machinery and tools. Numerous automatic planning programs have been written since the 1050's. We describe PARPLAN, a recently-developed experimental automatic planning program written in the AI language Prolog, that can generate plans with parallel activities.
