BFTT compatible software design/ prototype system development demonstrating innovative SMRMS concept for low-impact, automated shipboard readiness assessment. Aegis combat systems (C/S) team readiness categorized by individual watch station tasks toassess specific performance within assessed warfare process. Team measurable parameters are tactical results oriented derived from combat systems doctrine/ mission training objectives. Individual functional performance is PQS based and scored by watchstation procedural task. System scores team/ individual performance over time across selectable warfare mission areas. MOPs and scoring algorithms developed relative to command adjustable training requirements. Incorporates performance diagnostics andprovides remediation alternatives. Automated performance analysis/data collection supported through BFTT DCM/ passive C/S taps. Provides user defined query capability plus input/output to overall training readiness assessment products. Such an SMRMSapproach results in two principal benefits. First, overall training readiness appraisal but equally important a training resource tool permitting command training management to quantitatively examine individual watch teams and compare discrete missionperformance. It allows specific insight into actual watch station performance against a known set of measurable standards (MOP) to prioritize training resources and balance watch team talent. Moreover, it offers opportunity for CBT remediationpossibilities through comparative performance achievement scored relative to known data elements.BENEFITS: The on-demand, automated readiness assessment concept, designed under SBIR N00123 SMRMS for use in Aegis combat systems BFTT training has applicationacross Navy's training spectrum. Wherever simulation/CBT is used as a medium and digital data extraction is feasible, the SMRMS process can be duplicated to display performance/ readiness results. The concept defines training objectives, criticalfunctions/ tasks, correlates relative priority, assigns contributory impact, and develops conditional MOP within a tailored scoring methodology against desired standards. By focusing on team results it uses
