A computational model of Standing Joint Force Headquarters (SJFHQ) processes was developed using EXTEND simulation software. In this paper we describe the use of this modeling and simulation approach for analyzing time-critical information systems and performing trade studies. An object-oriented model was constructed of the processes performed by SJFHQ members and simulations were run to obtain system measures of performance. This model focuses on the planning processes performed by SJFHQ members to support the Effects-Based Planning processes and the Operational Net Assessment update. A complete four-level architecture was developed that captures all processes, sub-processes, information flows, and personnel task assignments. It includes detailed architectures and was based on US Joint Forces Command publications and subject-matter expertise. The model focuses on pre-crisis operations (where indications and warnings intimate an impending crisis for which an existing ONA has relevancy) and a SJFHQ that is integrated with a Regional Combatant Commander staff. Distributed operations with organizations outside the SJFHQ are also represented. The simulation was structured to focus on personnel issues, including individual workload levels, multitasking effects, and how these workload and personnel issues affect the overall time to perform the entire SJFHQ planning process.
