This study analyzes the engineer requirements of the 91DMTZ in two 1986 scenarios, and determines the engineer force needed for support the division. The analysis refines the division engineer battalion organization and develops the engineer augmentation that is required for EAD. The general study methodology compares engineer requirements with engineer capability. The requirements are unconstrained bnut realistic. They are calculated on site with no degradation, while capability is degraded with commonly accepted factors such as casualties and movement. As a result, the comparison provides time-phased estimates on what requirements can be accomplished in priority order. SWA and Europe scenarios, gamed by the DIME model, are used to generate engineer requirements. Detailed engineer requirements including artillery and aviation mine requirements are calculated for personnel and mission-essential equipment in consecutive time periods. For each time period, requirements and capability are tracked for each of the forward brigades plus the DRA. Engineer tasks are further grouped and compressed into increments ranked for lodgement, offense, and defense battle phases. The requirements are split between the 91DMTZ base case and EAD units augmentaiton case working in the division area of operation. Findings and conclusions address shortfalls, organizational discrepancies, and support requirements from EAD engineer resources. Recommendations hare based on constraints of not increasing personnel or C-141 sorties of the divisional engineer battalion and minimizing the size of the engineer EAD force.
