Although still useful for static topics, the JOPES
construct has outlived its utility for addressing the dynamic planning environment.
On the third visit, approximately 45 days from available-to-load date, the unit's plan is validated in JOPES
The Joint Staff will be responsible for updating the JOPES
and the JOPP with the model.
During contingencies, initial movement requirements are defined in an aggregated fashion in JOPES
while the actual shipment detail during movement of these requirements is recorded in DTS systems.
It should also not be unexpected that an enemy would attack US logistics through the supply or JOPES
The 1992 version of JOPES
LDM contained 468 entities and 1,994 data elements; the 1993 version had 362 entities and 1,318 data elements.
CENTCOM and TRANSCOM must synchronize the JOPES
retrograde timelines and the commercial carrier shipping schedules, which are not in JOPES
The combined system should also pull the data from JOPES
for deployment and redeployment requirements.
A package of recommended JOPES
changes was developed and will be coordinated through the JOPES
action group in the second quarter of fiscal year 2009.
At this point, JOPES
(Joint Operations Planning and Execution System) operators at the higher level confirm the data in the system and begin to resource the transportation requirements.
In addition to JOPES
, the system will have links to the Joint Flow and Analysis System for Transportation (JFAST) and many other modeling and simulation systems.
The process for generating and deploying Title 10 forces under this current system is not as responsive as the one used by the NG; JOPES
was largely designed to handle defense of the homeland and to fight the Nation's wars.
