Abstract : This paper examines that portion of operational art known as sequencing operations. More specifically, it develops the concept of functional sequencing, and how the air planner may apply this. Traditional sequencing is linear in its application. Functional sequencing is non-linear and as such, provides an alternate way to order the employment of forces. This study approaches this investigation from both a theoretical and a historical perspective. (AN)
