The staff uses the products associated with determining threat COAs to assist in developing and selecting friendly COAs during COA steps of the MDMP
. Identifying and developing all valid threat COAs minimize the potential of surprise to the commander by an unanticipated threat action." (6)
While JPP and MDMP
are excellent processes for what are primarily warfighting functions, their limitations as planning tools for comprehensive operations were exposed during more than a decade of complex operations requiring whole-of-government approaches.
After completing the crosswalk, the staff conducted an MDMP
session focused on developing an annex for the BCT.
Following these exercises, the 3rd ID SB sent the brigade S-2, S-3, and support operations officer (SPO) to conduct a parallel MDMP
with the 3rd ID for 14 days to identify tactical- and operational-level sustainment problems and mitigation options.
Consequently, the Army must integrate cost analysis into the military decision making process (MDMP
) which will add analytical budgetary rigor to staff planning; tie costs to alternative operational and tactical solutions; and provide fiscal visibility to war-fighting commanders to make cost-informed decisions during fluid battlefield conditions.
The strength of the calculator, however, is in the COA analysis step of MDMP
. Typical use of the calculator is at the end of the reaction portion of wargaming.
The battalion staff executed the MDMP
, developing the concept of the operation, tasks for the staff and subordinate units, the sustainment plan, and the communications plan.
The S-2 has much to do during MDMP
, so the BCT CBRN officer should seek out the S-2.
is taught to officers and noncommissioned officers alike during professional military education.
Cyberspace operations, operational design, cyber threats, cyber operational design, military decision making process (MDMP
Planning occurs at all levels, from the strategic to the tactical, and consists of three distinct parts: campaign design using Army Design Methodology (at the strategic level), operational planning using MDMP
(at the operational level), and troop leading procedures (at the tactical level).
The presented patient responded to megadose methylprednisolone (MDMP
) 30 mg/kg/d for 3 d, followed by 20 mg/kg for 4 d, and subsequently 10, 5, 2, and 1 mg/kg/d each for 1 week.
