The commander on the modern battlefield has the responsibility of supervising more assets and evaluating more information than ever before. Therefore, there exists a need for an aid to assist the commander in selecting a recommended course of action. The purpose of this thesis was to develop a tactical decision aid model that would assist the commander in selecting a course of action. The Quantified Judgment Model (QJM) served as the algorithm in this decision aid model. The QJM is a combat model that analyzed ground combat with a primary focus on the historical aspect of combat. Factors that served as input for the decision aid model included: 1. initial force structure for a US and Soviet force, 2. non tactical variables that influence the battle, 3. intelligence, 4. operational and environmental factors, and 5. current doctrine. The model varied the input variables and determined a force structure necessary for the battle to end in a draw. The primary focus of this thesis was not the assumptions made in the model or the tactical situation examined, but the methodology used in developing the model
