Abstract : The objective of the Engineer Modeling Study is to measure the contribution of combat engineers to the effectiveness of the combined arms team. The research program originated from a Mission Area Analysis (the Engineer Family of Systems Study (E-FOSS)), which noted that Army war games were good at representing unit offensive and defensive movements, but weak in modeling the impact of US and Soviet Union combat engineer activities on battle outcomes. In 1979, the US Army Engineer School (USAES), representing the Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC), requested that US Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) to correct this deficiency. The Engineer Modeling Study was the result. The Engineer Modeling Study itself is part of the larger Army Model Improvement Program (AMIP) which seeks to improve the caliber and quality of Army war games. An implicit goal of the Engineer Modeling Study is accurate and consistent representation of the effectiveness of engineer effort throughout the AMIP model hierarchy.
