Abstract:

This guide describes the processes for determining, documenting, and approving warfighting requirements in the domains of doctrine, training, leader development, organization, materiel, and soldier DTLOMS. It is designed to educate and guide the leaders and managers in the AMEDD community who must make decisions on resource allocation and prioritization, efficiency and effectiveness in execution, and organizational and programmatic redesigns to accommodate evolving roles and missions. The Chief of Staff of the Army CSA appointed Commander, Training and Doctrine Command TRADOC as the Armys approval authority for all warfighting requirements. Specific direction and guidance to accomplish these functions are in TRADOC Black Book Number 3, Requirements Determination dated March 1996, TRADOC Pamphlet 71-XX and Army Regulation AR 71-9. Commander, TRADOC directed that the AMEDD determine requirements more holistically, based on desired Joint and Army capabilities versus known deficiencies. This process begins with a holistic future warfighting concept. This concept is formed from a wide variety of inputs, including the national security and military strategies, lessons learned from recent operational experiences and future conflict scenarios. Additionally, the concept is influenced, but not driven, by an appreciation of future science and technology possibilities.
