Abstract:

This paper examines the adequacy of a division level, linear programming system named the Training Management Control System. The training environment of a mechanized infantry company is described in a manner which reveals synergistic time burdening at the line unit level. An Available Time Model is developed and used to quantitatively estimate minimum, mid-range, and high time burdening of infantry units. A softwarehardware test of the system is documented and shows that the TMCS fails to adequately handle time as a training constraint. Recommendations are included describing ways in which the TMCS can be improved to handle total time burdening as a constraint and ways of reducing environmental, synergistic time burdening. Author
