Abstract : This proceedings is from the Mini-Symposium on Operational Art and Analysis (OPARTAN) held at the National Defense University, Washington, DC, 6-9 March 1990. The objective of the Mini-Symposium was to begin to help military operations research analysts 'work the operational art problem.' The purposes were to (1) enhance the analytic community's understanding of current and past thinking, both here and abroad, on operational art and its relationship to strategy and tactics; (2) enhance the analytic community's understanding of its role in working 'the operational art problem,' including what has been, and should be done to design and apply useful games, models and simulations.
