Abstract : This report documents recent research and application of a decision support system (DSS) developed by the Armstrong Laboratory, Human Resources Directorate. This system is the Training Impact Decision System (TIDES). The TIDES is a computer-based DSS specifically designed to support key planners and decision makers (functional managers at the Air Staff or Major Command, training managers, etc.) for a career specialty (occupation). The TIDES was developed to extend task-based job analysis to permit more systematic consideration of personnel utilization factors, training costs, resource requirements, training capacities of units (base-level organizations) and managers preferences in determining the optimal allocation of personnel and training resources.
