MDMP-M Step 1:
USPACOM Multinational Planning Augmentation Team (MPAT)
and Deployable Joint Task Force Augmentation Cell (DJTFAC)
13 June 2014
To describe how Mission Analysis fits into the Military Decision-Making Process in a multinational context
Range of Military Operations
Interchangeable with all types of country/service-specific military planning processes (JMAP, JOPP, MCPP, MDMP)
Multinational Force Standing Operating Procedures (MNF SOP), Version 2.9
Gain knowledge of the Starting Conditions, the Process, and Results of the Mission Analysis step
Increased understanding of the sub-steps of the Mission Analysis step
Increased confidence in how to apply MDMP-M during TE-25, future exercises, and real-world operations
Formal Presentation Results of the Mission Analysis step
Questions and comments are encouraged
We will utilize MDMP-M as the MNF Planning Process for most groups during TE-25
Step 1: Analyze HHQ Mission and Intent Results of the Mission Analysis step
Need clarification? Ask the HHQ’s staff!
MNF Staff should provide any new facts as they emerge to planners
Step 3: Develop Assumptions Conditions
If an assumption is false, the plan could be invalid. If an issue does not have this effect, it should not be an assumption
Step 3: Assumption Examples Conditions
*Note: Assumptions should be 1) worded as facts and 2) do not involve simple answers from members of the CPG
Step 4: Develop Operational Limitations Conditions
Disseminate early and revise as often as required
COG Analysis looks at both friendly forces and the threat or adversary forces
A Decisive Point is a geographic place, specific key event, critical factor, or function that, when acted upon, allows a Commander to gain a marked advantage (or influence) over an adversary or contributes materially to achieving success.
Step 6: Identify Operational-level Tasks Conditions
Essential Tasks are listed in the Mission Statement
Step 7: Initial Force Structure Analysis Conditions
More specific force requirements will be determined after COA Development & COA Analysis
Step 7: Task Analysis & Assignment Conditions
Step 8: Initial Risk Assessment Conditions
Determine whether limitations, assigned tasks or assumptions create risk that has not been previously identified or accepted
Step 9: Determine Military End State, Military Objectives & Supporting Effects
Which objectives define success?
Which effects achieve these objectives?
Step 9: Objectives and Supporting Effects Supporting Effects
Step 10: Develop the Mission Statement Supporting Effects
Example of a “Restated Mission”
CTF-A deploys immediately to JOA Blue to deter Red forces from attacking Country Gray. CTF-A defends Country Gray and Country Green from Red attack beginning D-Day, H-Hour; defeats and ejects Red forces; degrades or eliminates terrorist activities originating in Country Red; and provides post-conflict support to stabilization and reconstruction operations in Red, Gray, and Green as directed in order to protect the sovereignty of Gray and Green and restore stability in the region. On order, CTF-A secures Country Red to enable installation of new government and military leaders.
Who, What, When, Where and Why
Step 10: Commander Supporting Effects’s Intent, Success Criteria
Restated Mission and Commander’s Intent permit planners to determine mission success criteria
CCIRs are not static
Remember: Operational Design is the conception and construction of the framework that underpins a campaign or major operation plan and its subsequent execution
Step 14: Publish Commander’s Planning Guidance for COA Development, and issue WARNORD #2
Reiterate: “What are we trying to accomplish is…”
