OODA Loop is strategic decision making theory that military operations are basically a sequence of decision making process that consists four main points as observe, orient, decide, and act. Orientation is a stage where the decision-maker adds the evaluation to Information on external situation. We think that Orientation consists of default and exception rule. In this study, we paid attention to orientation of OODA Loop, and investigated how two rules of orientation would influence the result of combat.
