Abstract:

This studys aim is to determine the comparative engineer capability of alternate unit structures supporting heavy divisions. The report uses unit, plus equipment and munitions, forecasts as of 15 January 1991. This study assumes all capability unit options have perfect planning and the same command and control. The study also uses a sample task list to represent the total engineer workload. The methodology parallels the 5-heavy-division force sent to operations DESERT SHIELDDESERT STORM. In this report, the engineer capability of three structures was rated in both 1991 and 1999 6 cases. The three structures are the Division Engineer, Regimental Engineer, and current structure or base case. The cases were expanded to 24 by analyzing each division zone with and without a corps support package. Additional excursions changed the size of this corps support package and the use of some key mining and digging equipment. This studys findings determine the capability of 24 engineer alternative structures constrained by unit personnel and equipment, constrained by available and forecasted engineer munitions, and expressed for a 5-division corps and an average heavy division.
