Planning for the synchronization of activities on the battlefield for an Army battalion task force requires detailed planning for movement of subordinate units, allocation of personnel and assets to tasks, and many other activities to ensure that maximum damage is inflicted on an enemy force. Currently, this synchronization planning is done manually by task force officers, primarily the operations officer. The process is time consuming and most often results in a plan which is feasible, but not necessarily optimal. Two optimization models are developed to aid in the synchronization of task force activities. One of the models determined the feasibility of a course of action to aid the operations officer in developing a maneuver plan. The second model aids the engineer officer in allocating engineer assets to maximize the combat value of tasks. When implemented on computers, these models are flexible in that they allow for changes to be affected quickly. Hence, more alternatives can be considered in a short period.
