Abstract : Two Engineer tasks, Construction of a Mobile Assault Bridge (MAB), and Execution of an Atomic Demolition Munition (ADM) were selected for analysis. Expected and actual performance data were obtained. Variations in Engineer performance of these tasks were then analyzed using several models to determine the effects of these variations on combat force effectiveness measured by enemy and friendly casualties.
