Abstract:

This report describes an evaluation of the utility and perceived effectiveness of a specific structure analysis and design technique as an aid in managing a complex military training environment. In this study SofTech, Inc., a Boston-based computer software firm, applied their Structured Analysis and Design Technique to the problems confronting the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command TRADOC in managing rapidly occurring innovations in training. These changes include the self-pacing of a large number of training courses, evaluating training effectiveness both in terms of the individual soldier and the unit, and the development of management strategies to improve TRADOCs ability to allocate resources, establish accountability, improve teaching quality, and to achieve a better match between training content and job objectives.
