Abstract : The Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI) and the Force XXI Training Program have sponsored the development of a structured simulation-based training program for selected staffs of conventional mounted brigades. The development effort, entitled the Combined Arms Operations at Brigade Level Realistically Achieved Through Simulation (and known as COBRAS) resulted in construction of training support packages (TSPs) for large-scale exercises and for small-group vignettes. Development of the scenario and all TSP materials followed the guidance found in the Methodology for Development of Structured Simulation-Based Training, published by ARI in 1995. The Report on the Methodology for Development of Structured Simulation-Based Training Programs expands the guidance found in the original methodology, based on experience in the COBRAS program. This guide contains additional examples and warnings, and more in-depth coverage of TSP construction and formative evaluations. It is intended for use by training designers and developers, as well as training program reviewers and proponents.
