Abstract : This briefing presents some results of our analysis of various methods and models that are used to determine wartime medical requirements. Our approach was focused on two key issues. First, we examined the requirements process, which really means understanding the main methods or tools that are used. The second key issue concerns the comparison of the requirements models used in the process. We identified three major objectives in the study plan. We would examine current methods and models. We would then examine some proposed or future methods. Understanding the requirements for similar resources allows us to then state their respective strengths and weaknesses and recommend improvements.
