    Abstract—Planning techniques recorded a significant progress
    during recent years. However, many planning problems remain
    still hard and challenging. One of the most promising approaches
    is gathering additional knowledge by using learning techniques.
    Advantageously, many sorts of knowledge can be encoded back
    into planning domains (or problems) and common planning
    systems can be applied on them. Macro-operators are well known
    sort of knowledge. Macro-operators are operators that represent
    a sequence of primitive planning operators that are formalized
    like ‘normal‘ planning operators. The other sort of knowledge
    consists of pruning unnecessary operators’ instances (actions) by
    investigating connections (entanglements) between operators and
    initial or goal predicates. In this paper, we will show how we can
    put these approaches together. We will of course experimentally
    evaluate how the performance of planners is improved. The
    experiments showed that combining of these learning techniques
    can improve the planning process.
