The military uses the Total Army Analysis (TAA) to transform verified force design concepts into practical adjustments to the Army’s infrastructure and develop the spending plan for that structure. It also conveys such modifications to the force via a two-phase procedure that results in the program of memorandum (POM) force and other administration elements.
TAA is a two-phase approach that determines the military’s overall warfighting needs. The most significant phase is Stage I, which involves the capability demand analysis, which comprises force instruction and statistical analysis. Funding and approval, Army senior commander assessment of resources determination, and confirmation are all part of Phase II.
TAA and POM force choices are sent via the Army Structure (ARSTRUC) communication. The ARSTRUC is the reference document through which the force receives advice and recommendations within the standard requirements code (SRC). The message separates the military into different aspects for resource management objectives and directs the unit to follow TAA choices as soon as possible.
Furthermore, through the phase I capacity requirement evaluation, the Army leverages the TAA to transform verified force design concepts into executable adjustments. The budget proposal for that framework is then created through the phase II budgeting and authorization procedure. The modifications are communicated to the force via the Army Structure message and the POM.
