Title Annual Act Operational Analysis Workshop: Providing a Venue for Nato Operational Analysis.
Publication Date Apr 2010
Media Count 18p
Personal Author H. Nijs
Abstract The ACT Operational Analysis Workshop has been held yearly since 2007 and fulfils in a need to bring together the NATO Operational Analysis community to discuss the common threads on the application of scientific methods to support the decision making process in the various NATO commands and agencies and at the national level. While Operational Analysis (OA) is applied at various decision making levels, the commonality of the practice of OA makes it possible but also necessary to discuss challenges, exchange best practices, gain insights and think about potential improvements. One of its main objectives is to compare the use of OA within the NATO Allied Command Operations (ACO), the NATO Allied Command Transformation (ACT), and the national laboratories and technical centres, and to determine how to improve synergy, cohesion and coordination between Operational Analysts within the NATO command and force structure and the nations. Furthermore, the OA Workshop explores opportunities to cooperate between NATO and national entities. The themes of the three workshops so far have been very diverse, but all have been within the overall aim to coordinate and improve the contributions of Operational Analysis to NATO operations and capability development.
