Army service schools use typewriters andor stand-alone word processors to prepare Army Training and Evaluation Program ARTEP documents as guides to unit training. Requirements to periodically revise ARTEP documents to reflect the continual changes in tactical doctrine associated with the force modernization effort, combined with the new requirement to prepare improved ARTEP documents containing detailed unit training plans, have greatly increased the size and complexity of the ARTEP development workload. The purpose of this research was to define the concept of a Computer-aided ARTEP Production System CAPS for the development of a prototype system within the U.S. Army Infantry School USAIS. The functions to be assisted by automation were defined through reviews of TRADOC guidance for preparing improved ARTEPS, TRADOC Reg 310-2 Test, and through review of the ARTEP development process within USAIS. Computer technologies appropriate to these functions were selected from among those technologies frequently applied to document preparation. This report provides input for the selection of hardwaresoftware for a prototype CAPS, and it aids in defining the researchdevelopment tasks required to develop such a prototype.
