Abstract:

The Installation Decision Support Model IDSM was developed by the Operations Research Center of Excellence, United States Military Academy, as an installation level budgeting priority tool for use by U.S. Army installation and garrison commanders in allocating funds. The IDSM utilizes Installation Status Report ISR data, commanders priorities, and funding strategies to assist in the allocation of infrastructure funds in the future it will also help allocate environmental and services funding. The system features database viewing and editing capability, situational map awareness, commanders guidance for developing projects, creation and comparison of funding strategies, and an after action report on the effectiveness of last years budget The IDSM is critical to the continued success of the ISR and U.S. Army infrastructure management. It effects change at the installation level where infrastructure dollars are spent, where infrastructure projects are created and executed, and where infrastructure exists. The IDSM will be fielded with the ISR software as an optional use tool to enhance installation budgeting.
