Abstract: The James Webb Space Telescope Near-Infrared Spectrograph (NIRSpec) will offer a powerful multi-object spectroscopic capability enabled by the instrument's micro-shutter arrays (MSAs). With this mode, the NIRSpec instrument can observe more than 100 targets simultaneously. The NIRSpec team at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) has been developing an MSA Planning Tool (MPT) to facilitate the complex observation planning process for a variety of observing strategies. The MPT is available as part of the Astronomers Proposal Tool (APT).
