Abstract : This research product presents task analyses of 2 of the 12 Critical combat flinctions (CCFs) that compose the Combat Service Support (CSS) Battlefield Operating System (BOS). These are: CCF 28, Provide Trapsport Services; and CCF 29, Conduct Supply Operations. These analyses are required by the brigade to achieve the outcomes necessary to provide supplies and transportation for a heavy brigade in compliance with the commander's concept and intent. These analyses identity the critical tasks and subtasks undertaken by the brigade commander, his staff% and the brigade's subordinate and supporting commanders and staffs. They reflect those activities performed during the planning, preparation, and execution phases of the battle. These analyses can be used by different functional specialists (e.g., training, combat and force developers). They will be especially of value where organizational interrelationships need to be considered in issues concerning combined arms integration, interaction, and synchronization. For example, the analyses provide information useful to training developers concerned with improving the proficiency with which transport and supply activities are coordinated and then integrated into combat mission planning, preparation, and execution.
