The Intentional Fast-Forward (IFF) planner is an attempt to apply fast forward-chaining state-space search methods to intentional planning---planning such that every action is directed toward some character's goal.

IFF incorporates constraints imposed by intentional planning to narrow down the set of steps which can be taken next, and it identifies fruitless branches of the search space early.
