Navy Mission Essential Task Lists (NMETLs) and METOC MEASURES 3 May 2007 Mr. David Brown FFC N721B
AGENDA Background Concept Tasks, Conditions, and Standards Measures Metrics
UNTL BACKGROUND CNO (and other Service Chiefs) decision to participate, with Joint Staff, in METLs development –Designated NDC (NWDC) as Executive Agent Universal Naval Task List 1.0 published –as Navy/Marine Corps/Coast Guard instruction 2002 – UNTL 2.0 and CFFC becomes Exec for NMETLs across FFC Claimancy 30 Jan 2007 UNTL 3.0 – DRRS covers nearly all operations required for mission success
UJTL/ UNTL TERMS UJTL - Universal Joint Task List - the comprehensive list (library) of tasks at the Strategic and Operational and Joint Tactical levels of war plus the service/agency task lists. NTTL - Naval Tactical Task List - the comprehensive list (library) of Naval tasks at the Tactical level of war UNTL - Universal Naval Task List UNTL= (MCTL + NTTL) UJTL = (SN, ST, OP, TA) + UNTL (NTA + MCT)
UNIVERSAL JOINT TASK LIST (UJTL) re: Libray OPERATIONAL Accomplish Objectives of Subordinate Campaigns and Major Operations STRATEGIC NATIONAL Accomplish Objectives of National Military Strategy OP 1 CONDUCT OPERATIONAL MOVEMENT & MANEUVER OP 2 DEVELOP OPERATIONAL INTELLIGENCE OP 3 EMPLOY OPERATIONAL FIREPOWER OP 4 PROVIDE OPERATIONAL SUPPORT OP 5 EXERCISE OPERATIONAL COMMAND & CONTROL OP 6 PROVIDE OPERATIONAL PROTECTION SN 1 CONDUCT STRATEGIC DEPLOYMENT & REDEPLOYMENT SN 2 DEVELOP STRATEGIC INTELLIGENCE SN 3 EMPLOY FORCES SN 4 PROVIDE SUSTAINMENT SN 5 PROVIDE STRATEGIC DIRECTION & INTEGRATION SN 6 CONDUCT MOBILIZATION SN 7 CONDUCT FORCE DEVELOPMENT NTA 1 DEPLOY FORCES AND CONDUCT MANEUVER NTA 2 DEVELOP INTELLIGENCE NTA 3 EMPLOY FIREPOWER NTA 4 PERFORM LOGISTICS AND COMBAT SERVICE SUPPORT NTA 5 EXERCISE COMMAND & CONTROL NTA 6 PROTECT THE FORCE ST 5 PROVIDE THEATER STRATEGIC COMMAND AND CONTROL ST 6 PROVIDE THEATER PROTECTION ST 7 ESTABLISH THEATER FORCE REQUIREMENTS AND READINESS ST 8 DEVELOP AND MAINTAIN ALLIANCE AND REGIONAL RELATIONS ST 1 CONDUCT INTRATHEATER STRATEGIC DEPLOYMENT, CONCENTRATION, AND MANEUVER OF FORCES ST 2 DEVELOP THEATER STRATEGIC INTELLIGENCE ST 3 EMPLOY THEATER STRATEGIC FIREPOWER ST 4 SUSTAIN THEATER FORCES STRATEGIC THEATER Accomplish Objectives of Theater and Campaign Strategy NAVY TACTICAL Accomplish Objectives of Battles and Engagements
Universal Naval Task List (UNTL) Common language describes what must be done. Identifies the level of war where tasks will be done. Lists conditions to describe physical, military, and civil environment in which tasks are performed. Lists sample measures and criteria that define standards associated with task performance. WE CAN ADD TASKS, CONDITIONS, & MEASURES TO THE UNTL
UJTL/ UNTL TERMS Mission - The action required and the purpose. Essential - Absolutely necessary; indispensable; critical. Task - A discrete event or action, not specific to a single unit, weapon system, or individual that enables a mission or function to be accomplished. Mission Essential Task List (METL) - A list of tasks considered essential to the accomplishment of the mission. A METL includes associated conditions and standards and may identify command-linked and supporting tasks.
NMET framework Perform this task…. …. Under these conditions…. ….To this standard.
UNTL Task Library Guidelines Activities visible outside the command Doctrinally based- should be able to find same words in Doctrine/ developing concepts (e.g. maritime domain awareness from National Maritime Security Strategy.) Discrete events Dont define who/ how/ or a system Dont describe environmental issues (physical, military, or civil conditions) Dont duplicate an existing task Universal Feedback to Navy UNTL/NMETLs link at
CONDITIONS Conditions are variables of the operational environment or situation that may affect performance: physical, military or civil. – Environment is the immediate situation or circumstance in which tasks must be performed (e.g., air temperature) – Conditions impact the ability to perform a task (e.g., information exchange problems impact the ability to share information with allied/ coalition partners - unrestricted, restricted, highly restricted)Example Reference Number and Title –C Air Temperature Definition – Atmospheric temperature at ground level (degrees Fahrenheit) Descriptors –Hot (>85 0 F); Temperate ( F); Cold ( F); Very cold (<10 0 F).
Definition –Minimum acceptable proficiency required in the performance of a particular task under a specified set of conditions Components –Consists of measure and criterion: –Measures: Provide basis for describing levels of performance (i.e., miles/hour, percentage, incidents) –Criterion: Defines acceptable level of performance (i.e., 10 miles/hour, 40%) Authority –Defined by multiple sources STANDARDS
NMET EXAMPLE PERFORM TASK OF: Interdict Enemy Operational Forces/Targets NTA to conduct air operations to destroy, neutralize, or delay the enemys military potential. UNDER CONDITIONS OF: Negligible Light (overcast night)(C ) - light available to illuminate objects from natural or manmade sources. Moderate Personnel Fatigue (C ) - degree to which personnel, due to lack of rest, are experiencing fatigue Moderate Collateral Damage Potential (C 2.6.7) - degree to which civilian population and structures (and friendly forces) are close to targets TO A STANDARD OF: 3 Hours to drop ordnance on target after initiation of task 100 Percent of missions flown achieve desired target damage <5 Percent of engagements resulting in collateral damage
Distinguish among varying levels of task performance Allow commanders to establish standards consistent with their mission requirements Provide basis for assessment (e.g., readiness assessment) Task Criterion Measure NTA Attack Enemy 90 Percent of targets Land Targets destroyed MEASURES
VALIDITY – Ability of a measure to capture desired performance. –Should support mission success factors. –Measures will drive performance. FEASIBILITY – Reasonable ability to collect data in support of the measure. –Should consider, manpower, money, existing databases, and technology. RELIABLE – Ability of the measure to tell the same story each time data is collected. –Need to be able to compare apples to apples. REPEATABLE – Ability to collect data for the measure each training cycle. –Need a steady source of data. MEASURES
MEASURES - PERFORMANCE DIMENSIONS – Time to Perform – Rate of Movement – Accuracy – Completeness – Durability/ Reliability – Power – Cost – Range/ Mobility – Lead Time – Delay Times – Effectiveness – Coordination – Integration – Efficiency Commanders may require measures of different dimensions of performance to describe required level of performance Examples:
INPUTS, PROCESSES, OR OUTPUTS?
MEASUREMENT LEVEL OF DETAIL
Where do Metrics come in? Performance to NMETL standards must be evaluated by collecting data against the Measures of performance. That is only one set of metrics required in a data collection plan. We also need Conditions data to understand how to compare the observed performance to the set standard. Other places where Metrics are needed include –Assessment- Across the force, where are our (community) strengths/ weaknesses in DOTMLP-F? –Operations Analysis- What other options are available and how should we value mission task contributions? –Validation- Is the chosen COA producing the desired outcomes? (Helps to answer How do we know were winning?)
Based on Commanders Intent & Joint/ Navy Doctrine Requirements NAVY WARFARE TRAINING SYSTEM Derived From Assigned Missions Driven by Mission Requirements, Training Audience, and Method IMPROVE NAVY WARFARE READINESS Plans Execution Assessments Based on Output of Requirements Phase This Phase Produces: Fleet, Group, Warfare Commander, & Unit Training Plans De-conflicted Training Schedules Training Events Based on Output of Plans Phase Training Conducted & Evaluated Commander Assesses Training Effectiveness & Navy Training Readiness Ability to Meet Navy Standards: Strengths / Weakness in Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel & Education This Phase Produces: Overall Training & Mission Proficiency Assessments Key Issues & Lessons Learned This Phase Produces: NMETL Tasks, Conditions, & Standards List of Commands With Role in NMETL Accomplishment This Phase Produces: Training Proficiency Assessments After Action Reports Key Issues & Lessons Learned
SUMMARY UJTL-UNTL A new Language Mission Analysis yields Mission Essential Task List (METL) Tasks, Conditions and Standards Standards include Measures and Criteria Metrics are required above NMETL standards NWTS process is a universal continuous improvement model
