SECTION 8 - CLEARANCE EVALUATION

SECTION BRIEF - This section describes procedures used in obtaining a Clearance Evaluation.

8.1 PROMOTION CRITERIA

As an OSI employee, you may request an evaluation at any time. The Cybernetic Engineering Division of OSI uses employee performance as the sole criterion for advancement. Promotions are accompanied by an automatic Clearance Level upgrade and an increased budget.
To aid OSI management in making objective performance assessments, an automated system for evaluating cybertanks has been installed in the OSI/CACD System 2. When you request a Clearance Evaluation, you are required to submit a cybertank design as an example of your work.
Your cybertank will be subjected to ten (10) simulated battles - against a cybertank created by OSI, and on a battlefield created by OSI. If your cybertank design is adequate (wins at least 7 out of the 10 battles), as demonstrated by its success in combat, the Director will approve your promotion.

8.2 REQUESTING A CLEARANCE EVALUATION

You may request a Clearance Evaluation electronically. through your terminal. Select CLEARANCE EVALUATION from the EMPLOYEE menu. The File Retrieval Panel (FRP) appears. You should then select your best authorized cybertank for evaluation.

8.3 THE EVALUATION PROCESS

After you have selected your cybertank, the OSI/CACD loads your cybertank, an OSI cybertank, and an OSI battlefield. The OSI cybertank is your cybertank’s enemy during the evaluation. A modified version of the Combat Simulation Module (CSM) is used to perform the evaluation. Most of the functions of the standard CSM, such as the satellite view, ore available under the EVALUATION menu.
To complete the evaluation process as quickly as possible, you can turn off the sound and graphics. It is advisable, however, to examine the battles closely to identify the enemy’s weaknesses.

8.4 PROMOTION APPROVAL

When your evaluation is complete, an official OSI Employee Evaluation Report is filed. The Printer Setup Panel (PSP) appears and you can display the report on your terminal screen or send it to your printer (if one is connected). For more information regarding the PSP, please refer to the OSI/CACD System 2 Reference Card.
If your cybertank fared well (wins at least 7 of the 10 battles), the report is stamped “Promotion Approved," and your Clearance Level is raised accordingly. If not, do not be discouraged. Your skills will improve with experience.

8.5 TIME FOR A VACATION

Congratulations. You are now conversant in the basics of cybernetics. YOU have completed the OSI training program in record time, and your accomplishments have been noted. The Director has granted you a two-week vacation. Enjoy it if you can!
