I would like to use a simpler, more direct phrase than "take X into account". I consider this a "Word choice and usage" question as directed by the community.

Here is my original sentence:

The approaches take runtime information into account, therefore generating a more effective plan with a higher chance of success.

I would like to restructure it to:

The approaches [verb phrase] runtime information, therefore generating a more effective plan with a higher chance of success.

    You might say, "The approaches include both runtime information and the program's structure as important factors [or criteria or considerations], resulting in a plan that is more effective and has a greater chance of achieving success." – Sven Yargs Feb 26 '13 at 3:34
  • structure of the program OR program structure – StoneyB on hiatus Feb 26 '13 at 3:34

Here's my idea:

The approaches by utilizing runtime information and the structure of program are generating a more effective plan with higher chance of success.

How about this?

The approaches consider runtime information and the structure of program, therefore it generates a more effective plan with higher chance succeed.

You can replace the question mark with account for, take into account, or consider, giving results like the following (which also correct some other problems with the sentence):

These approaches account for runtime information and the program structure, thereby generating a more effective plan with higher chance of success.
These approaches take into account runtime information and the program structure, thus giving a more effective plan with higher chance of success.
