Abstract:

The CJCS Joint Training Program institutes methods for identifying training requirements through review of the CINCs missions and the compilation of Joint Mission Essential Task Lists JMETLs. The Universal Joint Task List UJTL comprehensively outlines these joint essential tasks, providing a summary of CINC Missions, Joint Tasks, and supporting tasks. Computer aided exercises CAXs are tools available for monitoring and training staffs in these tasks. A primary goal during a CAX is to present a realistic decision environment to the training audience in order to produce realistic results. This thesis develops an analysis methodology for using exercise data to evaluate critical event causal audit trails. Specific objectives are 1 to develop methodologies to objectively analyze the causes for critical events, and 2 to demonstrate the effectiveness of these methodologies through the use of the Joint Theater Level Simulation JTLS. This thesis develops post-exercise analysis techniques for output data and provides a methodology for extracting appropriate data from a CAX. The results of a given CAX will then be more compatible with additional analysis techniques, such as trend analysis, and more useful and timely feedback can be provided to participants.
