Abstract : This study was initiated to develop a document to be used for the planning and programming of simulation acquisition in support of Marine Corps training. Generic training task requirements in the ground combat (C), combat support (CS) and combat service support (CCS) fields which can be enhanced through the use of simulation were identified. Tradeoff analyses were performed to develop prioritized lists of the tasks for which simulators should be developed and of recommended generic-type simulation devices. The extent of the need for simulation was assessed by determining which of the training task requirements would be improved by the use of simulation, taking into account the technology state-of-the-art (SOA). Measures of quality of training used included: performance, time to train, training cost, personnel support, technological risk, integratability with other training, and special assets requirements. This paper describes the methodology applied and the results obtained. Special emphasis is put on the criteria utilized and the planned future use of the results. (Author)
