Its topdown hierarchical expansion process provides an efficient non-linear planning mechanism. Its heuristic strategy flexibly chooses not to expend all of the effort needed to employ various resources unless it is absolutely necessary. 4. Conclusion This paper has presented a hybrid approach to the planning of textual structm'es. It is based on the idea that a variety of explicit knowledge resources and planning mechanisms are needed for an efficient but flexible text planner.
