Abstract : The Integrated Model Development Environment (IMDE) is a project being sponsored by the Armstrong Laboratory, Logistics Research Division. The goal of the IMDE contract is to demonstrate how logistics simulation can benefit from advanced software technologies. More specifically, a prototype object- oriented modeling environment for airbase logistics modeling is being developed. The environment will support graphical programming and linking of simulation objects. The eventual goal of the IMDE related research is to provide wing and headquarter level logisticians with a robust planning and re-planning system which incorporates advanced simulation and artificial intelligence technologies. This report summarizes the motivation behind the IMDE contract, the IMDE prototype modeling process, and the issues associated with transitioning the IMDE technology.
