Abstract:

This report describes the research and development activities conducted under the Early Training Estimation System ETES development project. The Early Training Estimation System ETES is an integrated set of procedures and automated tools for estimating training requirements during the earliest phases of the weapon system acquisition process. The ETES has three major components a System Description Technology SDT, Early Training Estimation Aids and Procedures TEAP, and Evaluative Technology. The SDT is a data base management system for storing and tracking task and training-related data. The data in the SDT is used in the TEAP to estimate training requirements for a new system. These training requirements include estimates of task requirements, course requirements, and resource requirements as well as estimates of training costs, training efficiency, and training requirements are assessed, training alternatives are evaluated, tradeoff and sensitivity analyses of key parameters are conducted, and the relationships between ETES outputs and key Army acquisition documents and processes are specified. This report provides an overview of the components of ETES, describes the research conducted under each of the five ETES study tasks and outlines future directions for improving ETES.
