Prodigy-Analogy provides the following types of suggestions to the
ForMAT user (see sample ForMAT Task Window):
- The goals of the new situation are similar to the goals of some
number of stored plans.
- Change the values of DEST, DEST-CC, POD, and POD-CC to be near the
specified geographical-location, e.g., Bosnia.
- Remove unnecessary FMs (e.g., hawks).
- Add a force (e.g., military-police) to support a new goal.
- Substitute comparable forces, e.g., (replace F-15 with A10a).
- Ask the ForMAT user to generate a ForMAT query to retrieve forces
that can support unsatisfied goals (e.g., secure town center).
