A study was make to identify functional requirements of future devices for training in command tactical decision making. Performance requirements of the development and adjustment of a scheme of maneuver or tactical plan are defined in terms of eleven task components of the decision-making process and in terms of the characteristics of the tactical information environment in which these decision tasks are performed. Present Army training techniques are critically reviewed in terms of the extent to which they provide training in the eleven component decision tasks under realistic information states. Four sets of experiments are described which obtained behavioral data on the effects of both variations in problem presentation characteristics and variation in group vs. individual problem solving on decision task performance. Results of these experiments provide a base for recommendations for device characteristics which satisfy functional, learning efficiency and utilization efficiency requirements. Author
