Abstract : The Marine Corps Combat Readiness Evaluation System (MCCRES) has been operational since July 1978 and, since that time, the Readiness Research group has performed research on MCCRES concepts, procedures, and data. Since the third quarter of Fiscal 1981, this research has been supported by an IBM Series/1 installed at The George Washington University (GWU). This support has allowed the development of MCCRES Software Applications (MCCRESSA) programs in a COBOL environment similar to that existing within Headquarters USMC (HQMC). Thus, the programs developed to support the MCCRES research conducted at The George Washington University are also suitable for operation at HQMC and, in some instances with modification, at Marine Units in the field. In fact, such MCCRESSA programs are presently operating at HQMC and in the field. This paper briefly describes the MCCRESSA files and application programs developed and now resident at GWU. Typical user interractions with each program have been recorded and are presented in Appendix A. The organization of Appendix A has been made to conform to that of the main paper. Appendix B has also been included to provide an alphabetical index to the MCCRESSA programs. This index gives the relevant page numbers in both Appendix A and the main body of this paper.
