Abstract:

Because human factors are not explicitly represented in the combat simulations employed by the Army, a detailed review was made of how 112 combat processes are represented in the following simulations CARMONETTE, BLDM, DIVLEV, FOURCE, JIFFY, VECTOR-2, CEM, McCLINTIC, and CASTFOREM. From the review it was possible to enumerate the assumptions about human factors implicit in these simulations and describe a structure within which the connections between human characteristics and combat processes could be related. This structure serves as a criterion for evaluating proposed human factors research projects related to combat simulations. The highest priority combat processes and human factors for research are also enumerated.
