Abstract: This paper presents a friendly visual tool for HAP, a rule-configurable planning system, which automatically adapts to each problem, in order to achieve best performance. HAP analyzes the problem and uses a rule system in order to configure the planning parameters in a way that best suites the morphology of the problem. The visual tool enables the user to use the planning system, get advice from the built-in rule system and even interfere with it. ViTAPlan also contains a visual designer, based on the Planning Domain Definition Language, that enables the user to create new planning domains and problems in a graphical way and get visual representations of existing ones. Furthermore the tool contains a module that simulates the execution of the plan and illustrates the changes in the world, which follow the application of each action in the plan.
