This user's manual describes the capabilities of the Force Oriented Cost Information System (FOCIS) model and how it is used to develop, evaluate, and track multi-year defense program plans. FOCIS operates on personal computers running Microsoft XP or any currently existing later operating system (VISTA or Windows 7). FOCIS operates as a standalone application or in an existing local area or wide area wired or wireless network. The foundation of FOCIS is a user-entered, unit-level force structure database that can be modified to reflect alternative defense planning strategies. FOCIS provides cost estimating functions to estimate the costs of the program plans. FOCIS also provides a suite of integrated analysis tools that allow users to evaluate program resources using common defense analysis models that can be constructed as combinations of missions, military functions, geographic locations, and other taxonomies deemed useful. FOCIS gives a country's defense planners the ability to understand the total cost of alternative program plans, to determine whether they are affordable and to understand how their resources are being used relative to national defense priorities.
