Abstract:

No methodology currently exists for Cost and Training Effectivenesss Analysis CTEA that Is generalizeable to all Army systems and nonsystems and Goes beyond the acquisition phase of systems to include the analysis of fielded systems. This project was to identify how these needs would be met through extension, development, or refinement of current methods. No current model or methodology lends itself to CTEA for developing and fielded systems, and to systems and nonsystems training. Therefore, a systematic approach to TEA was developed based on a family of submodels. Methods are available for accomplishing the processes embedded in some of these submodels. For other submodels, the required processes have been identified, but the development required of the specified methods was not within the scope of the current project. These findings, especially the systematic approach to identifying the appropriate CTEA model for a given problem, will be useful to training developers and researchers in this area. Detailed methods for performing some of new submodels developed in this effort await their application, and subsequent codification by analysts and researchers.
