Abstract
Commanders are required to make mission-critical decisions based on large amounts of distributed information that is not integrated in any meaningful way and typically represented in many incompatible formats. Support staff must read many potentially relevant documents and analyze data from many sources to extract the information needed to create a complex situation report that assesses operational capability in order to make critical mission go/no-go decisions. Capturing the history of such decisions, tracing them from triggering event to final resolution, and explaining the sequence of events to others at a later time are not trivial tasks. Modus Operandi proposes a Decision Explanation Engine capable of interpreting and tagging instance data in an ontology graph as a “decision history” and explaining it to end users. This provides users with better, more natural understanding of the sequences of events leading to or from a decision.
