Abstract : The hypotheses tested by this investigation are: The correlation of related team measures is significantly reduced due to a cancelling-out effect of individual components operative in range and bearing problems. When cancelling-out effects are reduced or eliminated, prediction of future team product, in training or an operational situation, will increase. With cancelling-out effects reduced, it will be possible to predict future performance from a smaller number of trials.
