Knowledge Engineering environments aim at simplifying direct access to the technology for system designers, and the integration of Validation and Verification (V&V) capabilities in such environments may potentially enhance the users trust in the technology. In particular, V&V techniques may represent a complementary technology with respect to Planning and Scheduling (P&S) contributing to develop richer software environments to synthesize a new generation of robust problem-solving applications. This paper presents the integration of classical knowledge engineering features connected to support design of timeline-based P&S applications taking advantage of services of automated V&V techniques such as domain validation, planner validation, plan verification etc. The result is a Knowledge Engineering ENvironment (called KEEN) that exploits a state-of-the-art verification tool, i.e., UPPAAL-TIGA, as core engine to support the design and development of timeline-based planning and scheduling systems. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2013.
