Abstract:

This report describes the research performed by the System Development Corporation SDC to develop data processing techniques to enhance the performance of personnel and logistics at corps and subordinate echelons. The research focussed on adminlog functions that related directly to tactical command and control. European and CONUS Corps provided principal sources of data used to isolate Resource Planning as the function most needing support. A conceptual job aid was then developed to support the area under investigation and tested using a modified CGSC scenario to determine feasibility. An evaluation briefing on the methodology was prepared, in concert with CACDA and ARI, and presented to staff officers in the European Theater to determine its ability to fulfill the needs of the user. The major finding of the evaluation is that the methodology is needed and should be considered for implementation in European Theater. Author
