Joint Planning and Execution Services (JPES) is the DOD's IT system that supports the policies, processes, procedures, and reporting structures needed to plan, execute, mobilize, deploy, employ, sustain, redeploy, and demobilize activities associated with Joint Operations. This service assists in the evaluation of processes and thus transforms the execution of Joint Operations.
Value to Our Mission Partners
The JPES program represents a portfolio of capabilities that supports both the deliberate planning and crisis action planning processes. Key elements of JPES include the Joint Operation Planning and Execution System (JOPES), JPES Framework (JFW), and the JPES Solution as well as the Joint Capabilities Requirements Manager (JCRM) and Preferred Force Generation (PFG).
JOPES is the joint system that enables force planning, deployment planning, and the execution of joint deployment and redeployment in support of military operations. The JPES program sustains and maintains JOPES. The major development effort of the JPES program is focused on two capabilities that will modernize the current JOPES system. These are the JFW and JPES Solution. JFW is a suite of software “infrastructure” components and services to support management of, storage of, and access control to JPES data as web services enabled data objects as well as data distribution, synchronization, data business rule enforcement, and workflow management in support of JPES capabilities. The JPES Solution is the user interface component of the net-centric, service-oriented architecture environment that will support force planning, deployment planning and the execution of joint operations.
JPES also sustains and maintains JCRM and PFG. JCRM is a web-based Global Force Management (GFM) tool that increases the efficiency of the GFM process by providing senior DOD decision makers with a consolidated database of joint forces, capabilities, and the ability to identify force or capability requirements in support of military operations. PFG is the joint system used to model the best potential unit to fulfill a force requirement.
JPES capabilities consist of support operations, service desk, software license renewals, software error correction, information assurance vulnerability alert (IAVA) compliance in the classified environment, training, and Continuity of Operations (COOP) nodes.
