Abstract:

The Military Operations Research Society MORS conducted a Capability Based Planning CBP workshop in Washington, DC, October 2004. Interest in the understanding and implementation of CBP was keen as more than 230 attendees gathered at the Institute for Defense Analyses for the three-day conference. The workshop included several plenary sessions with keynote addresses by high-level defense officials, a special educational session to make attendees aware of the state of the art in CBP and several working group sessions addressing specific CBP-related issues. The goals of the MORS CBP workshop were to inform the community of DoDs progress to date in implementing this new paradigm for planning, to review the lexicon and suggest changes, and to exchange concepts and new ideas that will further the development of the Secretarys CBP initiative. As a result of these discussions, the attendees gained a better appreciation of what CBP is, where it fits, and how it is different from business as usual. Several topics were suggested for a follow-on workshop, including analytic techniques appropriate to the three levels of CBP tools for adaptive planning analytic support for roadmaps characterizations and measurement of risk the role of costs in CBP the role of architectures in CBP and, interagency collaboration.
