AbstractIn the deductive approach, the synthesis of a plan is regarded as a problem in theorem proving. The goal state is described by a sentence in first-order logic and a correct plan is extracted from a proof of the sentence. A deductive framework, obtained by adapting a situational calculus for automated planning, is applied to the formation of construction plans for civil engineering. Proofs of theorems for even simple construction problems have required an expressive language to represent the structure of plans. Desirable features include sequencing, parallelism, contingency, repetition and modularity.
