This report documents observations of acceptability of the procedures and algorithms of the Unit Statis Projection and Trend Analysis Tool USPTA, a module of the AirLand Battle Management ALBM Advanced Technology Demonstration ATD decision aid prototype, version 1.2. This is one of a series of assessments of the ALBM ATD prototype conducted during its development. Because little documentation was made available, the assessment was limited to observations made by an analyst working with the Tool. The USPTA tool provides Army division planners with current and projected unit status information and Force Ratios. Review of the Tool suggests that algorithms supporting resource projections are not adequate for the projection task. Army Field Manual 101-10- 12 tables used to project status do not, in many cases, have the type of data necessary to support the calculation. The authors recommend that improved algorithms and procedures be developed and validated before proceeding with development.
