Abstract : This document is intended to be the basic resource for anyone attempting to use the Army Command and Control Evaluation System (ACCES) to measure command and control performance during a freeplay command post exercise at the division level. The ACCES system is appropriate for use at the brigade and corps levels also, but has rarely been used for other than division level exercises. A comprehensive description of ACCES, its development, and its promise is available in Halpin (1995). This report provides a description of ACCES Version 93 and is current as of the end of December 1993. No further modification of the ACCES methodology is planned at this time. Included as appendixes to this document are the materials necessary for learning how to conduct an ACCES application. They are the result of 3-year contracts with Evidence Based Research, Inc., for specific enhancements to the ACCES system and with Quantum Research International for support in data collection and analysis. Appendix A comprises the nine lessons of the data collectors' program of instruction (DC-POI). Appendix B is the Analyst's POI. Appendix C is the Analyst's Guide. Appendix D gives specific definitions of the ACCES measures. Appendix E contains the Data Collection and Reduction Forms.
