Abstract:

This study was sponsored by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, J4 Civil Engineer Branch. The purpose of the report is to impart methods and data analysis techniques developed by the Engineer Studies Center to civil engineer planners that rely on the Civil Engineer Support Plan Generator CESPG model. The CESPG is used as the basis for developing the Civil Engineer Support Plan that is included as an appendix to the Logistics Annex in all theater, service, and major command MACOM level operations plans OPLAN. Unfortunately the CESPG is one of the most complicated, misunderstood, and frustrating models to work with. This handbook provides planners and users with an overview of the model how the files interact and why you should care the phrase garbage-in, garbage-out comes to mind detailed discussions on each of the input files what they represent and what to look for tips and tricks regarding manipulation of the input and finally presentation methods of the output data to support decision making in the areas of time phased force deployment list TPFDL restructuring, OPLAN supportability, and host nation support requirements.
