Abstract : This thesis examines the two current Army methodologies, BTMS and TMACS, for planning and costing unit training events. In the process of examining the methodologies, this thesis reviews categories of training and the development of equipment operating cost factors. An additional training resource control scheme, the Jaehne model, is also presented. A model based on regression techniques is developed for determining the cost of battalion training events. Conclusions are drawn on the applicability and promise of the model. This thesis presents an additional training resource management procedure for use at battalion level. (Author)
