Readiness within military organizations and civil defence forces is typically assessed through elaborate exercises that mimic various real-life scenarios. Evaluators assess the performance of each individual and unit to identify deficiencies and venues for improvement. Needless to say, large scale collaborative exercises are personnel and resource intensive; success or lack-of can only be assessed at the end of the event; and the risk of shortfalls increase with complexity – i.e., activities that require collaboration among military forces and first responders from multiple nations. A predictive model will be presented for maximizing the impact, efficiency and success of military, civil defence and collaborative training exercises by aligning missions/goals and operational requirements to equipment and personnel to identify deficiencies, knowledge/skill gaps and actions that would increase the chances of success.
