Over the years, the domain of Self-Adaptive Systems (SAS) has gained significant importance in software engineering community. Such SAS must ensure high customizability and at the same time effective reasoning to meet their objectives by meeting end-user goals more effectively and efficiently. In this context, techniques related to Automated Planning have acquired substantial precedence owing to their adaptability to diverse scenarios based upon their enhanced knowledge extraction from available Knowledge Base. These AI planning techniques help in supporting self-adaptation mechanism of SAS. We have investigated these techniques to perform runtime reasoning of SAS requirements. This paper proposes an architecture for implementing the reasoning component of previously proposed Continuous Adaptive Requirement Engineering (CARE) framework. The proposed architecture has been experimentally verified by implementation of a prototype application using JSHOP2 (Java implementation of SHOP2, an HTN Planner).
