The paper is intended to introduce Artificial Intelligence work on robot planning systems which may have relevance for production planning, condition monitoring and recovery on a flexible manufacturing system used for small batch production. The paper describes the use of "Goal Structure" as a representation of the "intent" of plan steps and its potential use as the basis for a hierarchic control system for condition monitoring and re-planning.
