Write a 1- to 2-page answer for each of the three questions.  There is one question each covering the F104, F105 and F106 lessons. Instructors will grade your paper in accordance with the attached rubric. 

When answering all three questions, remember that these questions are less concerned with you detailing the specifics of any particular item (getting into the weeds), but are more concerned with you understanding the interrelationships, inputs and outputs, and demonstrating understanding of how the Army manages change with limited resources and uses prioritization requirements. While there are three individual questions, they are very much related and should support one another.

Short Answer Questions:

F104 Question: In the previous lessons, you have learned how the Force Management process translates changes in strategic guidance, enemy capabilities, and input from operational commanders into potential DOTMLPF-P solutions to identified capability gaps. These solutions can be materiel and/or non-materiel in nature. Briefly describe how Capability Developers and other force modernization proponents across the Army translate those potential solutions into the Force Design Update (FDU), and how the FDU creates approved requirements documents. (The focus is Phase 2 and 3 of FD)

F105 Question: Describe how the Army uses the Total Army Analysis to translate validated force design proposals into actionable changes to the Army’s force structure, creates the budget request for that structure, and communicates those changes to the force. (The focus is Phase 4 and 5 of FD)

F106 Question: Planning, Programming, Budget and Execution (PPBE) is the process that aligns strategy to resources.  Explain how PPBE encompasses the entire FM model, is cyclical, and is not simply an action that only occurs in Phase 4 of FD.  Ensure to address how PPBE is affected by and affect the other two primary decision support processes.

If something is not your original thought, you need to cite your source.  This includes direct quotations, paraphrases, summaries of the assigned readings, doctrinal references, or outside sources.  Refer to ST 22-2, Appx A for guidance about citations and footnotes/endnotes. Citations do not count towards page count.

Instructions: Write a 1- to 2-page answer to each of the three questions.  One question applies directly to each applicable lesson of F104, F105 and F106.  While the questions are answered individually, they are related. In addition, as FM is an integrated process, processes from F101-F103 may need to be incorporated or mentioned to demonstrate your understanding of the FM model.
