Abstract:

Logistics units must ensure that core and augmentee personnel are fully trained in the combat-critical skill of complex decision making. At present, training consists of expensive, manpower-intensive exercises, which afford only sporadic training opportunities. The need exists for more accessible, more affordable, and less manpower-mtensive training. Logistics Command and Control LC2 technology makes use of desktop computer hardware and software to produce simulation environments. Within these environments, personnel can experience real-world problems. The objective of this research is to design, develop, and test an experimental desktop decision trainer, incorporating simulation environments allowing for the practice of decision-making skills before, during, and after field exercises. This report documents the derivation of the instructional strategy and decision-making modeling approach for training decision-making skills.
