Abstract:

Since the inception in 1972 of Reserve augmentation as the primary mode of Reserve Training, the information needs of personnel responsible for the management and administration of the Reserve Training Program has steadily increased. This thesis examines the information needs of these personnel and evaluates the capability of the present Reserve Management Information Systems to meet these needs. It was found that the present reserve systems do contain useful and necessary information, however, in general, there is a need for more detailed and specific training related data that is not now available. To be useful as a Management Decision Support System for Reserve Training, additional data in the areas of correspondence course participation, Active Duty for Training performance, and advancement history and servicewide examine participation must be incorporated into the system.
