dc.description.abstractOne of the primary training tools available to a Unified Commander in Chief (CINC) for training his staff on their joint mission essential tasks is a command post exercise supported by a computer simulation model, commonly referred to as a Computer Aided Exercise (CAX). Currently, little quantitative data are captured during the exercise allowing for quick post- exercise analysis of critical staff processes inherent in the CINC's exercise training objectives. The objective of this thesis is to develop an exercise analysis methodology for evaluating the execution of joint tasks during the conduct of a CAX. Specific objectives are: (1) Demonstrate a methodology for developing quantifiable measures of effectiveness (MOEs). These measures must reflect the hierarchical structure of tasks given in the Universal Joint Task List (UJTL) as applied to the three levels of war (vertical linkage), and fuctionality considerations between related enabling tasks (horizontal linkage); and (2) Determine methods for implementing staff plans and capturing task performance data within the design of the simulation. This is intended to support the exercise analysis by capturing critical decisions, assumptions, and causal factors inherent within staff actions as they relate to plan execution, and will provide a framework within which conclusions about observed outcomes can be based. This objective involves demonstrating the methodology in an exercise conducted utilizing the Joint Theater Level Simulation (JTLS). The effort in this thesis is focused exclusively on joint tasks involving sustainment and support, however, the principles of the methodology are applicable to the entire spectrum of tasks in the Universal Joint Task List (UJTL)en_US
