This research examined the feasibility of a computerized scheduling system to assist the development of an annual training plan for a Patrol Air Wing. A prototype is proposed incorporating a modified A* search control structure to handle the combinatorial part of the problem. The system uses a pre-existing file for its database and is implemented on an ISI workstation using the Prolog computer language. Comparisons with a manual derivation of the training plan are made and analysis of the prototype results with the pruning variable at several levels is performed.
