To 'discover' the answer to your question, it would be advisable to read the OPMS documentation already put up.

If you had done that, you would have known that the OPMS is an aid to problem solving and decision making that depends on inherent human capabilities to resolve any kind of problems confronted (including, I'd believe, those of "reading comprehension"). It does demand:

i) recognition by the 'owner' that a problem exists; and then
ii) desire to resolve it.
