An on-demand, automated readiness assessment product that objectively displays scored watch team performance across shipboard required combat systems mission areas while furnishing input to overall warfighting readiness assessment. Measurable criteriaestablished focusing on Ship and Commanding Officer requirements will be evaluated relative to functional warfare area training requirements of FLTCINC, TYCOM and UNTL/NTTL, encompassing those discrete training objectives prescribed as trainingqualifications and certification standards. Assessment methodology focuses on graduated team performance over the IDTC Basic, Intermediate and Advanced phases as it progresses toward deployment certification. Incorporating diagnostic analysis to assesscombat systems team performance shortfalls, it will provide remediation alternatives down to the individual skill level. Effects of simulated or actual combat systems degradations will be factored as they impact demonstrated team performance. Watch teammission readiness will be categorized using functional building blocks to examine specific performance within contributing warfare process elements. Governing measurable parameters developed will be tactical results based as extrapolated from TYCOM/ATGcombat systems training objectives and as supported by data collection availability through passive taps. Prototype software GUI display using Windows technology will be a layered representation of each primary mission's functional building blocksdepicting overall warfare performance relative to assessed combat systems team readiness.Automated performance assessment methodology could be specifically adapted to support broad commercial application where simulation/CBT based team training is used toteach a series of tasks or functional processes as essential ingredients for business success. Any production activity that, through task analysis, equates training achievement to measurable output could be assessed in terms of comparable performancereadiness. Such areas might include power generation plant operation, manufacturing assembly processess, telemarketing, banking or sales promotion wherever definable objective performance standards are established.
