Abstract
Not Available Faster and more efficient methods are needed for developing scenario-based team and individual performance measures for distributed simulation environments. Aptima proposes a steamlined approach to identify critical team competencies, knowledge, and skills. This approach combines information about the nature of the tasks being performed with team theory and information about the structure and functions of the team to identify critical measurement points for more in-depth development of competency requirements and measures. Scenario events are then created to provide critical points for performance assessment. Because critical measurement points are scenario-bases, both automated and real-time observational measures are driven by scenario timing. This allows more efficienct measurement during the scenario and more rapid feedback to the team. At the end of Phase I, we will demonstrate an implementation of the measurement approach that uses a handheld data-input device synched to a simulation scenario to show how the data entry and feedback process can be streamlined. The proposed Aptima team has outstanding qualifications in developing, implementing, and assessing performance measures for distributed teams, supported by partnership with the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI), with extensive experience in developing measures of performance and measures of effectiveness (MOPs/MOEs) for Air Force mission tasks.
