6.8.3 Limitations

The EA is limited by what has been modeled, by the low fidelity of some models and heuristics, and by the scenario-specific population of the knowledge base. There are many aspects of plan execution that we do not currently monitor, although our monitoring framework can be easily extended when other aspects of plans are modeled. Our selected capabilities are mostly a function of the available input data and available funding for modeling. The EA can monitor a much broader range of plans than were used in our scenarios. In fact, it can monitor any plan composed of a partial order of defined missions for team members.
