2. Overview Modeling based on the task reduction paradigm Planning through task reduction: The workaround planning agent Critiquing through task reduction:The course of action critiquing agent Identification through task reduction:The center of gravity identification agent Guidelines for the modeling process

4. Definition of modeling Modeling the problem solving process of a subject matter expert means making explicit the way the expert solves problems. It consists of expressing informally, in English, a problem to be solved, all the intermediary reasoning steps, and the final solution. Modeling is generally the most difficult part of knowledge base and agent development. The modeling is performed by the Knowledge Engineer and the Subject Matter Expert, and is based on some general problem solving paradigm, such as task reduction, state space search, or generate and test.

5. The general task reduction paradigm • A complex problem solving task is performed by: • successively reducing it to simpler tasks; • finding the solutionsof the simplest tasks; • successively composing these solutions until the solution to the initial task is obtained.

8. Planning through task reduction Planning as an expertise task The workaround challenge problem The workaround planning agent Modeling the planning process Demonstration of the Disciple-Workaround agent

9. Planning as an expertise task Planning means developing a sequence of actions that achieve a desired goal. Examples: Develop a plan for a military unit to reconstitute or bypass damage to an infrastructure, such as a damaged bridge, tunnel or road. Develop a plan of how to manufacture a loudspeaker. Develop a plan of how to travel from one location to another.

10. Workaround generation: HPKB challenge problem Estimates enemy’s best way of working around a damage to an infrastructure, such as a damaged bridge or a cratered road. Supports air campaign planning by JFACC and staff: - facilitates evaluation of targeting strategies aimed at disabling enemy infrastructure systems; - provides information about enemy assets that should be preemptively targeted to impede its efforts to work around battle damage.

11. The workaround planning agent: input The input to the agent includes: - a description of the damage (e.g. a span of the bridge is dropped and the area is mined), and of the terrain (e.g. the soil type, the slopes of the river's banks, the river's speed, depth and width), - a detailed description of the resources in the area that could be used to repair the damage. This includes a description of the engineering assets of the military unit that has to workaround the damage, as well as the descriptions of other military units in the area that could provide additional resources.

12. The workaround planning agent: output • The output of the agent consists of the most likely repair strategies, each described in terms of three elements: • - a reconstitution schedule, giving the transportation capacity of the damaged link (bridge, road or tunnel), as a function of time, including both a minimum time and an expected time; • a partially ordered plan of engineering actions to perform the repair, and the minimum as well as the expected time that each of these actions require; and • a set of required resources for the entire plan and for each action.

14. Sample Workaround Problem:Mined Bridge

15. General statement of the input problem Training problem 1 is a 30m bridge (site100). The bridge is mined (damage200) with surface scatterable mines, as is thenear approach (site108, damage205), near bank (site107, damage204), riverbed (site106, damage203), far bank (site105, damage202), and far approach (site104, damage201). The river bed is only 14 meters wide but both the near bank and far bank are too steep (max-slope 100) to be trafficable. Both banks are 9 m high. The interdicted unit is the Red 101st Armor Battalion (Unit10) which is located on the near approach (site108) to the bridge. Red 101st Armor Battalion has blade equipped tanks (M60A1-TankBlade), and mine-plow equipped tanks (M60A1-MinePlow). The interdicted unit has operational control of a Combat Engineer Company (unit202) which is also located on the near approach. The equipment of the Engineer Company includes an AVLB, small boats (three-person-boat, eight-person-boat), explosives (bangalore, MICLIC), and rubble clearing equipment (CEV). The nearest earth moving equipment (bulldozer) is assigned to the Headquarters Company (Unit201) of the Division (Unit 910) Engineer Battalion (Unit20). The Division, Division Engineer Battalion and the Engineer Battalion Headquarters Company are all located at Town1 (site0) which is 70 km away from the damaged bridge. Corps Headquarters (Unit 91) is located at Town1. The Corps has three assigned bridge companies; a MGB Company (Unit910201), a M4T6 Bridge Company (Unit910202) and a Ribbon Bridge Company (Unit910203), which are all located at Town1. The MGB Company is equipped with MGB sets and a bulldozer. The M4T6 Company is equipped with M4T6 sets and a bulldozer. The Ribbon Company is equipped with ribbon bridge elements (RBBay,BEB,RBRamp) and a bulldozer.

The Division, Division Engineer Battalion and the Engineer Battalion Headquarters Company are all located at Town1 (site0) which is 70 km away from the damaged bridge. Corps Headquarters (Unit 91) is located at Town1. The Corps has three assigned bridge companies; a MGB Company (Unit910201), a M4T6 Bridge Company (Unit910202) and a Ribbon Bridge Company (Unit910203), which are all located at Town1. The MGB Company is equipped with MGB sets and a bulldozer. The M4T6 Company is equipped with M4T6 sets and a bulldozer.
