Abstract
A workshop was conducted for the Air Force Command and Control Battlelab (( CB)-B-2) in May 1998 to explore the potential use of collaborative tools in the preparation of an Air Tasking Order (ATO) in a geographically and temp orally distributed environment. Relying on past Warfare Analysis Laboratory Exercises (WALEXs) and operational expertise, APL developed, designed, and facilitated the workshop to "walk" participants through several vignettes, Each vignette was used to identify issues related to the application of co llaborative tools and to develop or examine alternative means to resolve th ese issues. APL and (CB)-B-2 staff developed a model encompassing both the ATO development cycle and the Joint Air Operations Center division structur e to focus discussion. Comments from subject-matter experts were gathered u sing the Electronic Seminar Support System. The data provided were incorpor ated into the (CB)-B-2 Concept of Operations for the use of collaborative t ools in Expeditionary Force Experiment '98. This article presents The "Coll aborative Tools" Workshop as an example of Air Force WALEX applications.
