Abstract : The theme of increased readiness through training has an inherent assumption that adequate facilitates either exist, can be modified, or can be built to house computerized training devices. Too often adequate facilities do not exist or require long lead times to acquire. Training capabilities can become a myth to the realities of not having an adequate facility or of having modern training equipment fail because of facility deficiencies such as high temperatures and power spikes. But what are adequate facilities for computerized training devices, and how do we acquire them? This paper will review the time phasing and types of funding available within the Department of Defense for construction projects, design concepts of a flexible modular training building including security and environmental considerations. Without understanding the time phasing for acquisition of training facilities, the effectiveness of training devices can be reduced to zero. (Author)
