Second, due to the volatile situation on the ground in Afghanistan, much of the data we have is incomplete and conflicts with other data sets supposedly reporting the same type of information.

For instance, LOE 1 is “Establish Civil Security (Combat Operations)”. Each LOE has subtasks (such as “restore and maintain order”) and a desired endstate (such as “safe, secure, and stable environment established”). The subtasks for the LOEs are broader than the actions in the Action Ontology. However, each subtask is easily mapped to a set of DIME actions. The desired endstates are very high level state variables, which are described by the metrics. These particular metrics can be directly mapped to the LOE Categories.

See Alcorn, Garces, and Hicken (2011) for an in-depth discussion of the modeling methodology and a specific case study of the simulation of Thailand in 2010.
