Objectives Management Application

The Objectives Management Application enables users to perform objectives management through an entire targeting cycle. Guidance from the political, strategic, and operational levels, directs targeting. The first activity of the joint targeting process is to translate the Joint Force Commander’s (JFC) objectives, guidance and intent into discrete tasks, each logically and directly related to the overall desired end state. The JFC’s objectives, guidance and intent are conveyed to Components in the form of the JFC OPLAN and Joint Coordination Order (JCO). The JFC must clearly identify what is to be operationally accomplished and under what circumstances and parameters, including appropriate measures of effectiveness (MOE). The components must develop their own objectives, tasks and supporting target nominations that will achieve JFC objectives. This method of planning ensures that tactical operations are ultimately driven by NAC objectives.
