Abstract : The report describes the Army Individual Training Establishment and the model designed to simulate the training given by the 11 Army Training Centers and by the 54 Army Service Schools in terms of students/trainees and the instructor/trainer and overhead staffing and costs required to support the training requirements. The model accepts requirements, historical data, specific course data, and user-furnished options as input to provide a series of reports at levels of aggregation from course level to total Army level for three fiscal years in terms of 12 manpower categories. The model can be used in an unconstrained mode or with constraints imposed in manpower and/or costs. Management reports detailing unused course capacities and courses experiencing difficulties according to specified criteria are also produced. The model will be used to investigate alternative training options to aid the Army in meeting its training objectives. (Author)
