Operations Management Solution Released

The Operations Management solution is now available to deploy with ArcGIS.

The first release of Operations Management includes a collection of maps and apps which serve as a set of tools to help states National Guard and Air National Guard.

Other branches of the military, as well as organizations that manage events and missions, could also gain from using this solution.

With this solution you can do the following:

Manage and Collect all Aspects of an Event or Mission

The Operations Management solution leverages Survey123 forms, Web AppBuilder and Dashboards to provide a dynamic method for input and editing of events, missions, status reports, and field reports.

A user can easily begin submitting an event by using the Operations Dashboard by selecting the Event Entry report. This form allows for the input of details related to an event. By using the included operational weather and extreme event layers as a reference, you can begin filling in common attributes of an event. Details like Event ID, Event Type, Unit Assignment, Location, etc. can all be input in this survey. The short video below shows how quickly personnel can complete the report and submit information regarding the event. All steps can be completed by using a web browser or by using the Survey123 field app on a mobile device.

Situational Awareness at all times and at all levels

The Operations Management solution empowers organizations to capture all details of an event or mission from beginning to end.

The solution contains four separate Survey123 reports that can be submitted from any connected device and by any member participating in Operations. These entry forms include: Event, Mission, Status and Field report. Immediately after submission, the information included in reports will appear on the solution Dashboards, Web Maps and Apps.

This immediate interaction between the Survey123 forms and Web Apps allows for rapid dissemination and intelligent decision making.

The Operations Dashboard provides the Mission or Event Manager a dedicated interface to submit events, missions, status and field reports. The Operations Manager app gives the organization the freedom to isolate events, generate reports, modify or move feature layers and find specific information within seconds.

Finally, the Operations Management Dashboard pulls all submitted data and neatly displays it in charts, graphs and allows for quick selection and filtering. The organization’s leadership will remain informed and aware of current and historical events and missions.

The short video below demonstrates how quickly personnel can filter the Operations Management Dashboard and get specific details related to a mission.
