Abstract : Collective front-end analysis is the process by which the critical missions and collective tasks of a battalion are specified. Collective tasks are units of work requiring two or more people for their completion. A mission-based approach is employed in CFEA. The CFEA process begins with specifications of a battlation mission, proceeds to specification of battlation element missions, and ends with delineation and description of collective tasks. The mission-based approach to CFEA is advantageous because it helps ensure a thorough listing of a unit's collective task and provides a means of relating task criticality directly to a unit mission. In order to reduce the workload on the user and help organize the massive amounts of data involved, user job aids were prepared.
