Abstract : The primary objective of this BCTP Database Development effort was to provide a prototype database system encompassing corps, division, and brigade echelon operations conducted during BCTP training. The intent of the database is to increase the utility and accessibility of BCTP data for all users by extending development work on the prototype to provide for wide area access. The prototype BCTPdb contains nearly complete data from two BCTP WFXs and Final Exercise Reports from six WFXs. In contrast to the legacy databases for the maneuver CTCs, the BCTPdb, through three users' tests, has demonstrated the functionality necessary for a database common to all the CTCs. It is the intention of the Center for Army Lessons Learned that the BCTPdb become the cornerstone of a CTC Common database to be developed on an enterprise architecture plan which will provide for global access. This report contains The Final Report, Data Dictionary, User's Guide, Loading Procedures Guide, Converted Data Structures description, and the PowerBuilder User Interface description.
