Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis is to present a method of evaluating joint operation plans OPLANs using the Joint Theater Level Simulation JTLS, a theater-level war game which models the functions of air, ground, naval, logistics, and intelligence activities. The thesis outlines the organization and function of the participants and the types of game play possible. The method proposed uses a series of two-sided war games to evaluate aspects of OPLANs and to identify areas for resolution in new plans. Aspects of OPLANs which are appropriate for analysis with war gaming are identified. Limitations of OPLAN evaluation using JTLS are addressed and recommended solutions are presented.
