Technical conops concepts_technical_training_course_sampler


Published on

This three-day course is designed for engineers, scientists, project managers and other professionals who design, build, test or sell complex systems. Each topic is illustrated by real-world case studies discussed by experienced CONOPS and requirements professionals. Key topics are reinforced with small-team exercises. Over 200 pages of sample CONOPS (six) and templates are provided. Students outline CONOPS and build OpCons in class.

  2. 2. OCD Flows To OpCons and CONOPS Operational Concept Formal CONOPS Document Sections Sections • Overview • EXECSUM • Problem Statement • Section 3 – Situation Today • Changes Needed • Section 4 – Justification for Changes • New Capability or System • Section 5 – End State Envisioned & OpCon • Operational Uses • Section 6 - Scenarios Copyright STC March 2008. 141 All rights reserved.
  3. 3. Data-Driven OpCon and Future  Concepts  Standard Operating User- Focused CONOPS (e.g. JOpsC) Procedures (SOP), Are the Linchpins OPORDS, EXORDs, Ops Assessments Scenarios, Current System/Situation, P3I & ECPs Justif for Delta, Scenarios Summary of Impacts Features Left Out & Training Personas Obsolescence Analyses & Scenarios Programs Personas, Use Cases OpCon CONOPS & Scenarios User Manuals * OpCon Text, Scenarios, Effects-Based Solutions, Lessons Regular Input From Users Regular Input From Users, Learned Modeling & Simulation TTPs Copyright STC 2010.

  4. 4. Copyright STC 2008. All rights reserved. Structured Dialogue With Operational Users - - - especially with Hands-On Operators - - - OpCon, CONOPS, (to learn current concepts, ops scenarios, biases, lessons from exercises & ops, Modeling & Simulation future needs, impressions of similar systems, etc.) Operating Environment Existing New Existing m&s m&S System or Component OpCon CONOPS New M &s M&S 2 X 2 Matrix addresses most common M&S situations. Modeling & Simulation (M&S) - - - Traditional Decision Points - - - 1. What do we want from the M&S effort? 2. What real-world things are we examining with the M&S? 3. What systems/platforms should be modeled? 4. At what fidelity? 5. What operational environment should be modeled? 6. What combination of systems/platforms is appropriate? 7. What operational scenario should be employed? 8. What combination of dependent and independent variables is best? 9. What roles should be scripted? 10. Does the M&S result make sense?
  5. 5. WHAT You Build Is Driven by Client’s Interests Client’s Interest . . . Your Course of Action . . . • Set up a new organization • Get people to accept new approach • Offer new system Build CONOPS w/ Build OpCon & Formal Template • Host an exercise Scenarios • Assess operational utility of a system – That is completely new Build CONOPS w/ – That already exists Fielded Template • Assess disruptive technology Envision or rapidly build a prototype Technology in a System Copyright Solid Thinking All Rights Reserved • Explore utility of a device, Build EmpCon & weapon, etc (not a system) OpCon
