The After Action Review AAR Guide contains procedures for the preparation and conduct of Army Training Battle Simulation System ARTBAAS aars. The guide describes the purpose of an AAR, the role of the chief controller, and the four stages of an AAR. Examples of effective and ineffective AARs are presented, and the essentials of effective AARs are discussed. These guidelines on Army Training Battle Simulation System ARTBASS after action reviews AAR are intended to be used by the responsible commander for battalion command group training exercises. Although the guidelines specifically address ARTBASS training, they provide guidelines whenever training would benefit from AAR. The guidelines similarly will be useful for the ARTBASS new equipment fielding team and to those installations and simulation center managers where ARTBASs or similar training simulations are being used. During a command group training exercise, feedback should be provided to increase and reinforce learning. The AAR provides a sound method for diagnosing unit training needs and is an effective teaching technique.
