Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to develop a management plan for including Personnel Service Support PSS functions into Army models. The study began with a review of the literature which described existing Army models. We followed this initial screening process with telephone interviews and with on- site visits to key users of Army models. By meeting with PSS subject matter experts SMEs, the study team determined candidate PSS functions for inclusion into Army models. The study team developed and recommended a methodology for incorporating the strength management function into the SIMNET, ARTBASS, and CBT-SIM training models. The study team also developed a statement of work for a model WARPAM which will assist in measuring the overall efficiency of the replacement system in light of its force structure and doctrine, the capability of the medical system to return patients to duty, and the rear area threat. WARPAM results will allow us to improve the replacement system efficiency estimates used in Army analytical models.
