Abstract: Automated planning and electronic execution systems offer tremendous potential for enhancing operations aboard Space Station FREEDOM (SSF). To exploit this potential, the Operations Planning and Scheduling Subsystem (OPSS) is being developed at NASA's Johnson Space Center (JSC). Such systems also may make valuable contributions to the operation of resource-constrained, long-duration space habitats of the future. The advantages of electronically conducting 'housekeeping,' maintenance, and scientific and manufacturing activities will be significant.
