Hierarchical task network (HTN) planning is a model-based approach to planning. The HTN domain model consists of tasks and methods to decompose them into subtasks until obtaining primitive tasks (actions). There are recent methods for verifying if a given action sequence is a valid HTN plan. However, if the plan is invalid, all existing verification methods only say so without explaining why the plan is invalid. In the paper, we propose a method that corrects a given action sequence to form a valid HTN plan by deleting the minimal number of actions. This plan correction explains what is wrong with a given action sequence concerning the HTN domain model.
