Abstract

In this paper, we present the implementation of Multi-touch Table (MTT) to support the Military Decision Making. The need of the multi-touch table technology is essential for effective and efficient outcome especially in the Malaysian Environment Army. The decision making process is also integral to successful performance of the battlefield. The military decision making process emphasized on timely decision making, the understanding between commander's intent and staff besides the clear responsibility of the commander and staff. Therefore, the crux of this paper is on how to optimize the military decision making process through the Critical Success Factors (CSFs) that have been identified from preliminary study. By adapting the Critical Success Factors (CSFs), all the concepts, ideas and arguments can be brainstorm clearly and effectively around the Multi-touch Table which further gives advantages in visualizing, organizing and manipulating the data/information amongst military officers. The adaptation of the elements in Critical Success Factors (CSFs) also will promote the communication between commander and staff in the activities that involved visualizing the battle-space, describing the visualization to subordinates/staff, directing action in terms of the battlefield operating system and leading the unit to mission accomplishment. This paper also will present the findings and results obtained from series of questionnaires and interviews amongst Subject Matter Experts (SME) in the domain of Military Decision Making. Based on preliminary study indicated that the Criticality of elements in Critical Success Factors (CSFs) in supporting the process of military decision making. One big issue or dilemma in planning and execution of military decision making is the Commanding Officer (CO) need to rely fully on the subordinate officers' coordination ability and to understand effectively of the consequences each 'Course of Action' (COA) suggested by subordinates officers. The application of Multi-touch Table will be benefited in term of the medium used in supporting the discussion and brainstorming session between the Commanding Officer (CO) and the subordinate staff. Decision makers will refer to the shared display together at the same time with different orientations. Multi-touch Table is interactive table that becoming affordable in commonplaces such as in offices, universities and homes. This technology offers the world possibilities such as task engagement, face-to-face communication, social interaction dynamics and simultaneous input contribution. In the nut shell, the appropriate medium such as Multi-touch Table will put the positive impact towards the process in military decision making and addition to this point the adaptation of Critical Success Factors (CSFs) may give a lot of advantages specifically in planning and execution of military decision making.
