The estimate process: D68-6/357-2011E-PDF

observations /

The Canadian Forces Operational Planning Process (CF OPP) is a systematic approach to analyzing a situation, bringing staff expertise to bear on the relevant factors, narrowing courses of action, obtaining the commander’s approval, and developing the detailed annexes necessary to produce an executable plan. In order to support the commander and his/her team in the achievement of the CF OPP, Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) is investigating computer-based critiquing systems as decision support facilities for the Estimate Process. During the first phase of this project, defence scientists have dedicated time and efforts to improve their understanding of the Estimate Process. The aim of this memorandum is to document this effort. It presents the Estimate Process as described in the CF manual as well as information on how this process is performed at the operational level. Furthermore, it introduces some decision-support system concepts that could be provided to the Estimate Process.
