EXERCISE NAME Master Scenario Events List (MSEL) Conference DATE Master Scenario Events List (MSEL) Conference DATE
EXERCISE NAME What Is a Master Scenario Events List? Chronological listing of scripted events that generate activity in specific functional areas in support of exercise objectives Functional exercise (FE) – Drives participant play Full-scale exercise (FSE) – Supplements active play Contains injects Scenario events that prompt players to implement the plans that the exercise is designed to test Short MSEL – lists the inject, delivery time, short description, responsible controller, and receiving player Long MSEL – detailed description, exact quotes and formats for inject, and description of expected action
DATE EXERCISE NAME Elements of an Inject Designated scenario time Event synopsis Controller responsible for delivering inject Expected action Intended player Objective to be demonstrated Notes section
DATE EXERCISE NAME Types of MSEL Items Contextual Injects Controller to player Build contemporary operating environment Contingency Injects Controller to player Events communicated to players if they do not occur Necessary for play to continue and reach exercise objectives Lessons Learned: When reading message injects, simulators should be as realistic and emotional as possible.
DATE EXERCISE NAME Types of MSEL Items Expected Action Events Holding place in MSEL Notify controllers when an expected action would typically occur
DATE EXERCISE NAME How to Develop a Master Scenario Events List Review exercise objectives and scenario Develop a timeline of anticipated player actions Identify a chronology of key actions that must occur, either scripted or actual These can be accomplished by function and/or jurisdiction Develop these using a MSEL program Compile all MSEL events into a single list and vet with participants Refine selected MSEL events and complete long version
DATE EXERCISE NAME Americana Master Scenario Events List
DATE EXERCISE NAME Scenario What are the assumptions / artificialities of the scenario? Will we play real world weather conditions? Will we use an artificial exercise date? Will we operate on compressed time or real time? Will we replicate real world or artificial distances in the interest of time? Which agencies should participate notionally?
