Abstract:

The Operations Planning Tools OPT are an integrated set of aids to assist Army tactical planners in developing and evaluating courses of action. This report describes the background of, concepts for operation, and functional capabilities of OPT. The concepts for OPT were generated from an analysis of combat staff officers performing critical planning tasks. Functions were allocated to the planner and to computer support tools according to relative strengths and weaknesses. OPT was designed to provide support in visualization, computing estimates, and information management functions to support rapid revisions in encoded concepts and projections of battle outcomes.
