Summary of CoordinatorsThe paper introduces Coordinators program which signifies the importance of distributed intelligence and accommodating problem solving. The paper mentions that the most challenging issue with Coordinators is the distributed nature that demands seeking information and verifying proposed changes with other agents.ASPEN and CASPER is also being mentioned as the planner and scheduler as heuristic schedulers that developed at NASA.The authors also introduce other search based approaches to scheduling such as; local search, tabu search.Moreover, the paper describes the more promising techniques for solving the execution time action selection problem in Coordinators.Consequently, the paper focuses on research problems in Coordinators. Summary of Distributed Management of Flexible Times SchedulesThe paper briefly explains the general distributed scheduling problem which occurs in a dynamic environment where a team of agents execute a combined mission.
