Technological advances bring an increased need for training. Military programs have difficulty providing adequately for increased training in a cost-effective manner via traditional methods. This research examines if improvement in military training is possible through identification of commonalities in complex information technology system architecture. Geographic Information Systems are used as a representative example of a complex system. An architecture review is conducted for physical and functional comparison, and a qualitative review of training success factors is applied to an extrapolated common architecture. This research indicates that training to a common architecture framework does not significantly depart from training to individual Geographic Information Systems with respect to knowledge retention, but it does allow for more flexibility in development and deployment. Continuing research with a quantitative analysis and exploring the applicability of this concept to other complex systems is recommended.
