"The U. S. Army Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation Command (STRICOM) is developing the Close Combat Tactical Trainer (CCTT) to support maneuver training for platoon and company units. The CCTT is the first part of the Combined Anms Tactical Training (CATT) system providing operational training for combined arms foroes on a virtual battlefield. The U. S. Army Research Institute (ARI) also is developing structured CCTT training support packages TSPs) for required mission and task training. Successfiil structured training in the Virtual Training program (VTP) with Simulation Networking (SIMNET) established a model for similar CaT training. This report examines integrated system management needed to implement suceessfull training with the CCTT and its TSPs. While CCTT development has focused on simulation requirements, and TSP development has focused on training requirements, total system management has been a secondary consideration. Conceived in a Total Quality Management (TQM) framework, the report proposes processes designed to sustain and improve the training effectiveness of the CCTT thronghout system life. The emphasis is on continuous monitoring of training proces and products to provide management feedback, and establishing process action teams to define and solve system problems. The report identifies some training process indicators, and possible management Support tools."--DTIC.
