Abstract
One facet of decision superiority is to shorten the time required to make good decisions. It is in this line of thought that OPP-ADS (Operations Planning Process Advanced Decision Support) has demonstrated an integrated suite of tools able to create/store/retrieve and rapidly adapt operational contingency plans to produce executable plans for specific situations. Complementary to these functionalities, a link management tool allows one to tightly couple tools that support the design of a campaign plan (for example, center of gravity analysis and decisive point analysis), the management of risk elements, the management of criteria with their associated after action report, as well as the management of decision-matrixes. This concept of linking key analysis elements provides the capability to rapidly identify pieces of analysis that can be customized according to the situation. This work has led to the identification of functional requirements related to decision-support tools for operational planning.
