Founded in 1987, the Planning / Scheduling and Configuration / Design (PuK) special interest group brings together interested researchers and practitioners in the problem areas:
- Configuration/ Design
- Action Planning/ Planning
- Scheduling/ Scheduling
A joint approach to problems and solutions (which are shaped by artificial intelligence) has proved to be very fruitful, as there is some overlap both in the problems and in the modelling and solution approaches.
The group meets annually for a workshop (the PuK) at which current work is presented and discussed.
