Describe the methods of presenting data in accordance with
DA Pam 325-10, FM 101-5-1, and STP 11-25M13-SM-TG.
The materials contained in this lesson were derived from
the following publications: DA Pam 325-10, FM 101-5-1, and
responsibilities include preparing and lettering the charts used in
command briefings and in the training presented by Army training
activities. Traditionally, most people think of these activities taking
place in a garrison environment.
However, you will find that these
activities take place in a combat environment as well.
In a combat
environment, how well you prepare the graphics used for a briefing has a
direct bearing on the success or failure of a unit's mission.
PART A - USING CHARTS TO ILLUSTRATE DATA
Visual Information (VI) Work Order, DA Form 3903-R.
Like any other Army function, a visual information facility must have a
base document from which it performs its work. A VI facility uses DA
Form 3903-R (figures 1-1 and 1-2) as this document.
In the visual
information facility, this document serves a multi-purpose function.
When properly completed, the VI work order provides an audit trail for
each project the facility undertakes by documenting the requester, time
required to complete the project, materials used, and the number of
people and their skills participating in the project. The VI work order
The completed VI work orders also serve as a source of information for
completing annual reports. Additionally, the information recorded on the
VI work order also helps the facility manager justify money for
equipment, materials, and personnel to operate the VI center.
Use figures 1-1 and 1-2 to follow the discussion of DA Form 3903-
