Abstract:

This study quantifies workload planing factors for survivability, mobility, and countermobility tasks performed by combat engineers under adverse desert conditions. This analysis defines the engineer workload requirements for 26 tasks traditionally performed in support of maneuver units in the forward combat zone. It focuses on three of the four engineer mission areas survivability, countermobility, and mobility. It measures the equipment and manpower effort needed for work performed in a common earth Europe and for work performed in sandy, rocky plateau, and salt marsh desert soils. In addition, it measures the degradation to work efficiency caused by intense desert heat. Keywords Productivity and Heat.
