This paper briefly describes some of the plan execution problems prevalent in the simulated battlefield domain and how they can be addressed. The system described uses generalised actions which are expanded to low level actions at the time they are executed, ensuring their relevance to the prevailing situation. The continuing value of plans is ensured by monitoring the assumptions and constraints used during planning and calling for re-planning when a violation is detected. An example of the operation of the planner is given and potential future enhancements briefly discussed.
