The majority of planning and scheduling research has focused on batch-oriented models of planning. This paper discusses the use of iterative repair techniques to support a continuous planning process as is appropriate for autonomous spacecraft control. This allows the plan to incorporate execution feedback - such as early or late completion of activities, and over-use or under-use of resources. In this approach, iterative repair supports continuous modification and updating of a current working plan in light of changing operating context. .
