This report presents an overview of the types of Joint Readiness Training Center JRTC unit performance data available to the Army training development community and some analysis techniques that demonstrate JRTC data scope, functionality, and usability. The demonstration analysis was performed across seven JRTC rotations for the defensive mission. Computerized OC checklist data, personnel Battle Damage Assessment BDA, and unit take home packages were the primary sources of information. The preparation of JRTC data for examination involved procedures that facilitated computerized data manipulation and generation of statistics across multiple rotations within the constraints of a Zenith Z-248 computer the Army standard personal computer. The demonstrational analysis yielded only broad results regarding unit performance in conducting defense on the JRTC battlefield. However, the process of preparing and analyzing JRTC data extracted from the ARI-POM data base archive produced multiple illustrations of both positive and negative aspects of the scope, functionality, and usability of the data base archive.
