The Canadian Forces Operational Planning Process (CFOPP) is a methodical approach to analyzing a situation, bringing staff expertise to bear on the relevant factors, narrowing courses of action, obtaining the commander’s approval, and developing the detailed annexes necessary to produce an executable plan. It is based on an Estimate Process that involves the elaboration of different Courses of Action (COAs) following situation analysis and the selection of the most appropriate one for its subsequent planning. The Estimate Process is often performed under high time pressure and stressful conditions. Under the influence of these factors, the human capacity of reasoning and judgment can be significantly reduced. In order to support the commander and his/her team in carrying out the CFOPP, Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) is conducting research and development activities to investigate different types of computer-based systems that can provide decision-support facilities. One of these activities is the investigation of computer-based critiquing facilities for the Estimate Process. The aim of this document is to document some of the work that has been executed at the initial phase of this project. It presents different critiquing systems that have been identified for the Estimate Process.
