The purpose of this thesis is to determine if the Queuing Graphical Evaluation Review Technique (Q-GERT) can accurately model tactical military communications in a manner which can be used and understood by managers who have little computer expertise. Q-GERT is a FORTRAN-based analysis package which models networks consisting of events (nodes) and activities (arcs). The communications of a mechanized brigade covering force is easily modeled using Q-GERT symbolism and user written FORTRAN inserts; however, a manager must be proficient in FORTRAN and have access to the 1000 node/1000 arc Q-GERT package to accurately implement this model. The conclusion of this thesis is that Q-GERT is a flexible modeling technique which should prove to be a valuable managerial tool for the military manager when the larger Q-GERT package is used.
