Abstract
The military campaign planning process involves multiple commanders at different levels of command and with different areas of responsibility. In such a highly interdependent and data-intensive activity, it becomes difficult to coordinate all plans and plan components to generate a joint plan free of inconsistencies, or even to track the source of an inconsistency, let alone repair it. This paper presents a plan management approach based on Hierarchical Task Networks. It demonstrates how this approach can be developed into a system for visual analysis of plans, plan validation and monitoring, and explains on a practical example how such a system can trace failures through different levels of command, so as to detect and repair inconsistencies between plans.
