Abstract:

The Vital Planning and Analysis ViPA workbench is an automated logistics feasibility analysis tool used to support planning and logistics. ViPA makes use of Order of Battle ORBAT data as an input for its calculations. The ORBAT Data Service is a Web Service for storing force structures to be used by the ADF. The service is composed into what is known asa Service Oriented Architecture which provides a loose coupling of self contained services. This architecture helps to provide a reusable, access controlled and resilient data source. This report describes the design of the ORBAT Data Service and how it is used to manage and share ORBAT data between tools such as ViPA.
