Abstract
The project aimed at identifying existing technologies matching the needs and requirements for Air Command and Control planning and scheduling problems. It was mainly based on the results obtained from a previous work aimed at capturing the basic requirements for an Air Force Command and Control Information System. The survey identified many contacts, companies, commercial products, surveys and research projects related to planning and scheduling. From contacts and companies, fifteen products were identified with six contacted people. In terms of COTS or near-COTS products, the literature review identified tow references as sources for identifying other planning and scheduling COTS and nine systems as potential COTS. In terms of research, the literature review identified different approaches currently investigated to solve problems such as replanning. They have also generated ideas for research projects applied to the Air Force. Four references were identified as sources for surveys of planning and scheduling research and 21 projects as interesting input to research in planning and scheduling. The main deficiencies found in existing technologies can be summarized as being the replanning capability and the military mission planning provide by commercial products. Therefore, research project should be focussed on dynamic replanning the context of military mission planning.
