Abstract:

When initially developed, the Force Stratification System FSS was an automated computerized system designed to functionally assess and display the personnel distribution and costs of Army resources devoted to various combat and support functions. Improvements were made to the FSS to more fully use the data base of Sections II Personnel and III Equipment of the Table of Organization and Equipment TOE information to sort and arrange the data in formats that are beneficial to the needs and requirements users. In addition to its former capabilities, the FSS can now present MOS by of the function, additional skill identifier ASI, grade, and cost. Equipment can be isolated by standard requirement code SRC, SRC paragraph, and cost for either team, company, battalion, or entire force. All the equipment of a force can be listed and totaled by line item number LIN and costs. Through the various sorting and arrangement processes, a wealth of data can be obtained from the FSS data base. This user handbook provides a brief description of the FSS, identifies the stratification analysis report displays currently available from FSS, presents the method for requesting reports desired by the user, and shows the format in which the stratifications are displayed.
