Abstract:

Designing organizational processes is to select best course of action COA to accomplish organizational mission, which is under organizational resources capability constraints. In this paper, a new methodology is advanced to obtain an optimal strategy of organizational processes, which is based on organizational resource capability and desired effects. We define the basic conceptions that include statements of organizational environment and organizational resource capability, actions, events and effects, on which dynamic Bayesian network DBN and Markov chain are employed to represent the evolving of organization with its environments. An example of joint landing campaigns is analyzed in our paper, and the new methodology is applied to design optimal strategy for a military organization to accomplish its missions. The optimal COA, obtained from our new methodology under diverse campaigns conditions, are given and analyzed. Results from the simulation of the COA show that our approach to solve optimal strategy of organizational processes accord with traits of general landing campaign.
