Abstract

Planning is widely been used in many areas such as in medicine, administration, business, logistics, education, environment and family matters. In automated planning research, the word "plans" refers specifically to plans of action. It is about the representation of future behavior, generally a series of action, with temporal and other constraints on them for execution by some agents. Theoretically, planning is an important part of rational behavior. In this study, we review some of the studies that have been conducted in menu planning. It covers the introduction of menu planning, the state of the arts for nutrition care expert systems and the approaches that have been applied. Furthermore, the advantages and limitations of the methods commonly used for menu planning are also highlighted in this study.
