I often receive questions about how to invent advantages and disadvantages for STANAG 6001 LEVEL 3 briefings.
Some people even ask about universal ideas they could use in every briefing.
The universal part of the briefing is its structure and format, which is always the same. You can read about it here: HOW TO PREPARE A STANAG 6001 BRIEFING
Although there are some ideas that could possibly be used in a few different types of briefing topics, I don't think there are ideas that could be used in EVERY briefing. This is caused by two reasons. First, there are a few different topic areas that could be identified, which I will write about later on. Second, every advantage and disadvantage needs to be justified with additional arguments, which will depend specifically on a particular topic.
However, there are a few types of advantages and disadvantages that might be fairly universal, but still have to be adapted to every particular topic, especially in terms of argumentation and justification.
The following subject areas of STANAG 6001 level 3 briefings seem to be the most common:
Examples of different briefing topics can be found here: BRIEFING TOPICS
For most of those topics, there are some common ideas that could be used as advantages and disadvantages of particular SOLUTIONS.
1. PRICE/COST - something can be cheaper or more expensive;
2. TIME/DURATION - something can take shorter or longer; be faster or slower;
3. SECURITY - something is safer/more dangerous;
4. QUALITY - something is better or worse quality;
5. USEFULNESS/RELEVANCE - something is more or less useful/relevant;
6. FEASIBILITY - something is easier/more difficult to arrange/organise;
7. CANDIDATES - experience, health, foreign languages, motivation, performance.
