An example of routine IPB products, which serve as a best practice, in supporting MDMP is using the event template
and event matrix to identify decisive points at which division-level shaping operations, fires, and air-ground integration can disrupt the enemy's operation or preparations.
With such decomposition the syntactically relevant parts of verb's meaning are shown and the processing time differences found in recent experiments comes about because path-of-motion verbs have a simpler event template
than manner of motion verbs in goal of motion structures.
The event template
or predicted enemy timeline shows when each enemy element could reach a designated phase line, usually the forward edge of the battle area (FEBA).
Rather than wasting valuable analyst time and effort in fully fleshing out each and every avenue of approach, intelligence sections should devote their attention to determining enemy decision points using an Event Matrix and graphically displaying these decisions in time and space on an Event Template
The event template

The S2's event template
is important here, and it is an integral product for COA analysis.
This should consist of at least a reconnaissance mission statement, task organization, timeline, necessary movement, time of reconnaissance OPORD, and a draft event template
This tool "supports the event template
by providing details on the type of activity expected in each NAI, the times the NAI is expected to be active, and its relationship to other events on the battlefield.
2) The event template
is not required for the mission analysis briefinq.
