TAILIEUCHUNG - Selection of a course of action by obstacle employment group based on a fuzzy logic system

The paper has focused on the point at which a decision is to be made to activate the Obstacle Employment Group (OEG), which is a defining moment for the overall engagement of the group. The course of action is selected based on a Fuzzy Logic System (FLS), created by translating the experience of decision-makers into a single knowledge base. The FLS mainstays are four input criteria and one output, interconnected by a rule base. | Yugoslav Journal of Operations Research 26 (2016), Number 1, 75-90 DOI: SELECTION OF A COURSE OF ACTION BY OBSTACLE EMPLOYMENT GROUP BASED ON A FUZZY LOGIC SYSTEM Dragan PAMUĈAR Military Academy, University of Defence in Belgrade, Serbia dpamucar@ Darko BOŽANIĆ Military Academy, University of Defence in Belgrade, Serbia dbozanic@ Aleksandar MILIĆ Military Academy, University of Defence in Belgrade, Serbia milickm5@ Received: February 2014 / Accepted: May 2014 Abstract: The paper has focused on the point at which a decision is to be made to activate the Obstacle Employment Group (OEG), which is a defining moment for the overall engagement of the group.

The defensive operations relevant to this paper are those taking place when the enemy takes initiative in a bid to seize a territory or break out into a defended area [3]. The objective of defensive operations in 76 , , Selection of a course of action by OEG based on a FLS general is to defeat the will and intentions of the enemy and neutralize the forces the enemy’s offensive powers rest on [3]. Engineering units prepare defensive terrain by performing a broad range of engineering tasks. These are designed to inflict losses on the enemy, and to halt, inhibit and control the movement and maneuver of the enemy; barriers and obstacles are employed to block access to facilities, areas and routes [3].
