Abstract:

The Training Information Management System TIMS is a computer-based system which can be used by Army personnel to collect and display training evaluation data during field training exercises, and to generate summary evaluation reports following the exercises. The TIMS has two major subsystems the Electronic Clipboard System ECS, and the Training Base Station TBS. The ECS is a hand-held electronic field training and performance evaluation aid, which contains and displays performance evaluation checklists and other associated information to allow a training evaluator to record the success or failure of a soldier in meeting th standards of performance for selected tasks. The TBS is a computer-based subsystem that maintains multiple checklist databases, transfers data to and from the ECS, and generates printed and displayed summaries of training performance. It is not field-portable, but resides at a fixed location e.g., the unit headquarters. Key words Training management, Soldier performance, Unit evaluation, and Field-portable computer unit.
