Table of Multiple Effects

Keywords: NOAH, TOME, side effects

Categories: Planning

Author(s): Austin Tate

The Table of Multiple Effects (TOME) is a table (first used in the NOAH planner) relating patterns (representing facts) to nodes in a plan where they are asserted or denied. It is used by Non-linear Planners to detect quickly interferences between actions on parallel branches. However, it can also be used to recognise beneficial side effects which may allow other goals to be satisfied without introducing new actions.
