The purpose of this research is to explore the use of partial-order planning (POP) and software agents as enhancements to Decision Support Systems (DSS). Current limitations in many DSS include the inability to integrate and manipulate models and a lack of automated maintenance. POP and software agents are proposed as solutions to these limitations in decision support.
