OPLOG Planner

OPLOG Planner 8.0 is designed to assist logistics planners in calculating supply usage estimates in support of operations. This program is specifically designed to support operations typically associated with multi-phase operation plans (OPLAN) and operation orders (OPORD).

In OPLOG Planner, the user creates units based on standard Tables of Organizations and Equipment (TOE) (base, not MTOEs) and maps these units into task organizations. The task organizations can then be assigned to a multi-phase order and assigned user-developed mission parameters sets (which essentially describe the conditions under which the task organization operates). Reports then provide supply consumption by unit, task, organization, phase and order.

CPX In A Box

Click Here first, to access the user's guide, which is teach you how to access and navigate CPX In A Box.

Click Here to access the site, after reviewing the user's guide in the link above.

CPX In A Box is a training tool that enables and supports home station training of the Operating and Generating Force (specifically Army Financial Management (FM) and the Contracting Community). This long overdue training tool replicates usage of the ERP (Enterprise Resourcing Planning) systems used to support the procurement process. From funding commander requirements to awarding of the associated contract, processing of the goods received to paying the required obligation, FM elements are now able to practice war-time competencies in an interconnected-systems environment.

At the click of a button, the ultimate (technical) training experience is at the finger tip of commanders and trainers.  What, How and When?  'CPX in a Box' (CB) is a systems approach that aids home station training of Army Financial Management (FM) and Operational Contract Support (OCS) elements.

It is a web-based (CAC-accessible) virtual training tool that links relevant, time-phased and tailorable training scenarios. CB facilitates multi, joint and unilateral technical FM and OCS for Decisive Action in support of Unified Land Operations (ULO).  CB scenarios (complete with supporting documents normally derived from the Orders Process, e.g. Operations Order, Annexes) are inextricably linked to Standardized Army Universal Task List (AUTL). Extremely user-friendly, CB simplifies the training design process.

If you want to increase the amount of time you have as a commander and/or training officer/NCO to (a) evaluate your subordinates and/or (b) retrain select tasks...then look no further.

OPLOG Planner 8.0 is designed to assist logistics planners in calculating supply usage estimates in support of operations. This program is specifically designed to support operations typically associated with multi-phase operation plans (OPLAN) and operation orders (OPORD).

In OPLOG Planner, the user creates units based on standard Tables of Organizations and Equipment (TOE) (base, not MTOEs) and maps these units into task organizations. The task organizations can then be assigned to a multi-phase order and assigned user-developed mission parameters sets (which essentially describe the conditions under which the task organization operates). Reports then provide supply consumption by unit, task, organization, phase and order.

CPX In A Box

Click Here first, to access the user's guide, which is teach you how to access and navigate CPX In A Box.

Click Here to access the site, after reviewing the user's guide in the link above.

CPX In A Box is a training tool that enables and supports home station training of the Operating and Generating Force (specifically Army Financial Management (FM) and the Contracting Community). This long overdue training tool replicates usage of the ERP (Enterprise Resourcing Planning) systems used to support the procurement process. From funding commander requirements to awarding of the associated contract, processing of the goods received to paying the required obligation, FM elements are now able to practice war-time competencies in an interconnected-systems environment.

At the click of a button, the ultimate (technical) training experience is at the finger tip of commanders and trainers.  What, How and When?  'CPX in a Box' (CB) is a systems approach that aids home station training of Army Financial Management (FM) and Operational Contract Support (OCS) elements.

It is a web-based (CAC-accessible) virtual training tool that links relevant, time-phased and tailorable training scenarios. CB facilitates multi, joint and unilateral technical FM and OCS for Decisive Action in support of Unified Land Operations (ULO).  CB scenarios (complete with supporting documents normally derived from the Orders Process, e.g. Operations Order, Annexes) are inextricably linked to Standardized Army Universal Task List (AUTL). Extremely user-friendly, CB simplifies the training design process.

If you want to increase the amount of time you have as a commander and/or training officer/NCO to (a) evaluate your subordinates and/or (b) retrain select tasks...then look no further.
