Abstract
The Joint Staff Operational Research Team's (JSORT) mission is to provide immediate and independent Operational Research advice and analysis to assist the Joint Staff plan and support the Canadian Forces' International missions. As part of this service, members of the JSORT can participate on Study Teams providing tools and techniques to facilitate analysis and decision making. This capability was demonstrated by the author as part of the Strategic Movement Assessment Study Team during the Spring and Summer of 1996. Mathematical modelling services were provided during the problem definition stage. Facilitation services using a structured brainstorming technique were provided to generate potential solution options. A qualitative analysis technique was developed to screen the solutions to obtain a short list and a multi-criteria decision aid was provided for detailed analysis of the remaining options. In September 1996, the Strategic Movement Assessment Team Leader will present three options to the Chief of Defence Staff for decision. If other Joint Staff Officers are interested in utilizing these tools and techniques in their studies or require decision support and analysis using any other Operational Research methods, the JSORT is at your service.
