This thesis discusses the ways in which choices are made by an AI planner. A detailed examination is made of the prerequisites for choice making, and a discussion of how the making of good choices can be automated is included. For a given planner, the prerequisites for choice making can be split into two parts: finding the types of choice made during the planning process, and finding the information most relevant to the making of each type of choice. Two means of automatically making "good" choices are described: using general planning policies that have been supplied by the user, and using learned heuristics. These possibilities are explored for a non-hierarchical version of Tate's NONLIN.
