The purpose of IPB is to support commanders and their staffs in the decision-making
process. The first functions of the process are preliminary to the production of
the products that assist the decision-makers. The fifth function, threat
integration, produces these products. When the evaluation of the threat is
completed, the information is integrated with the analysis of the weather and
terrain. The threat integration function is continuous and combines the analysis
of the enemy's doctrine with the weather and terrain to determine how the enemy
might actually fight within a specific battlefield environment.
