As part of the Tactical Applications TacApps effort to design a highly user-friendly, relevant, and capable software system for the common operating environment COE v3, engineers at the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center, Picatinny Arsenal, NJ, Weapons and Software Engineering Center, devised and facilitated a two-day design workshop at 1st Armored Division headquarters in Fort Riley, KS. The workshop consisted of several exercises designed to uncover the natural tendencies, viewpoints, terminology, and workflows of target users performing specific tasks. A total of 46 warfighters were included in the exercises. The TacApps team was able to gather significant insight through virtue of the design session. This insight heavily influenced the further design and development of COE v3 software for Mission Command systems.
