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. 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 describes a set of five programs which are loaded by MCCRESSA functional programs to perform common operations. The support programs documented are Program Control (PGMCTL), Set Program Parameters (SETPRM), Get MCCRES Master File Header Information (MFINFO), Get MCCRES Requirement Counts File Header Information (CRINFO), and Find Data Set (FINDDS).
