Abstract : The Manpower, Personnel, and Training Assessment (MPTA) is part of the Human Systems Integration Assessment (HSIA) that supports each Acquisition Milestone Review. Originally, the MPTA was completed by the Human Resources Command and reviewed the availability and completeness of the documents defining a developmental system's manpower, personnel, and training (MPT) requirements. There was no technical analysis of how well the requirements were met. In 2005 that responsibility was transferred to the US Army Research Laboratory's (ARL's) Human Research and Engineering Directorate (HRED). The ARL-HRED field elements are experienced in the use of field data to provide technical human-factors analysis but some of the practitioners have less experience conducting MPTAs. The MPTA Handbook provides current guidelines for conducting an MPTA. It includes a list of the critical documents needed for the assessment; which agency produced each document; and the document's contribution to the MPTA. It also includes 2 checklists: one to ensure the documents needed to support the MPTA are available and complete, and one to support the analysis of the technical suitability of the MPT characteristics of the proposed system. The purpose of this handbook is to provide the basis for more uniform, complete, and comprehensive MPTAs.
