LESSON 2/TASK 1
Figure 4 is an illustration of a display of this preliminary data. It summarizes complaints received over a
twelve month period. An examination of the chart tells you when patrols are likeliest to be most busy.
The Army Training and Evaluation Program (ARTEP) or SQT might be scheduled during the period that
has the fewest complaints.
FIGURE 4. COMPLAINT LEVELS COMPILED BY MONTH.
In the example, the complaints range from a high of 251 in August to a low of 124 in January. The
