This thesis is an evaluation of the performance of a tactical route decision aid model that was developed by CPT Charles Shaw in this 1989 Master's thesis. The decision aid was developed as a module inside the Condensed Army Mobility Management Model (CAMMS). The decision aid selects tactical route based upon a complex methodology which considers a number of variables in the tactical situation and the time available. The Janus(A) high resolution combat model was chosen to compare the routes selected by the decision aid against routes selected by active duty officers in two different areas of operation. A measure of effectiveness was selected based on the casualty figures generated by the Janus(A) model. When compared against the officer routes using the MOE, decision aid routes were more effective in one of the two areas of operation. Janus(A) was also used to determine if routes the decision aid deemed as better were more effective as measured by the MOE. The study found that some of the better routes were actually less effective in Janus(A). The study concludes that the model needs some refinement.
