Abstract : The aim of NATO Technical Team SAS 044 Decision Support to Combined Joint Task Force and Component Commanders has been to establish the current status of analysis in direct support of Commanders within NATO, and Nations. It has concentrated on the general principles for successful analytical support, rather than identification of specific tools and models. The guidance in this Code is intended to assist analysts and military staff in understanding the principles of providing decision support to Commanders. It is not intended to be prescriptive, nor exhaustive, and is based upon knowledge from experience gained on recent operations. This Code contains pertinent information aimed at helping prepare, deploy, integrate and support OA teams in the field. In addition to the COBP, the team has developed a short summary document (two pages in length), explaining the role of operational analysis in a form more accessible to those working under short time scales, such as senior military commanders. This summary document is an Annex in the Code.
