Abstract : The purpose of this Operational Guide is to describe the Training Impact Decision System (TIDES) and to explain how the system supports the Air Force training environment. The TIDES is a computer-based training decision support technology. It has been designed to provide crucial data needed by functional and career field managers when those managers must render decisions related to the utilization and training of personnel assigned to organizations and Air Force specialties (AFSs) under their control. This Guide describes TIDES capabilities to gather and analyze data applicable to AFSs and how that will give functional and career field managers the ability to simulate the impacts of planned changes to an AFS.
