Maintenance Manpower Modeling: A Tool for Human Systems Integration Practitioners to Estimate Manpower, Personnel, and Training Requirements
This chapter discusses the maintenance manpower modeling capability in the Improved Performance Research Integration Tool (IMPRINT) that supports the Army's unit of action. IMPRINT has been developed by the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Human Research and Engineering Directorate (HRED) in order to support the Army's need to consider soldiers' capabilities during the early phases of the weapon system acquisition process. The purpose of IMPRINT modeling is to consider soldiers' performance as one element of the total system readiness equation. IMPRINT has been available since the mid 1990s, but the newest version includes significant advances.
