This thesis analyzes deliberate attack missions conducted at the U.S. Army National Training Center (NTC) and evaluates the relationship between the operational graphics used and three unit performance measures of effectiveness (MOE). A methodology for categorizing and evaluating operational graphics is developed along with frequency of operational graphics usage information. A correlation between unit performance and operational graphics evaluations to the measures of effectiveness. Discriminant data analysis techniques attempting to further define a causal relationship proved inconclusive due to observation sample size and unquantified concomitant variables. The methodology and analysis contained in this thesis have application to both the creation of training standards for improvement of unit performance, and the evaluation of current operational graphics doctrine. Included within the research are descriptions of the NTC environment, Combat Training Center Archive, battalion task force organization, the use of operational graphics to portray deliberate attack missions, and the task force deliberate attack.
