Abstract : This report documents the Ground Vehicle System Integration (GVSI) and Design Optimization Model GVSI is a top-level analysis tool designed to support engineering tradeoff studies and vehicle design optimization efforts. The model uses simplified functional and parametric relationships to evaluate system performance issues. GVSI's primary function is to illustrate the dependence of various system and subsystem functions; the goal is to provide a better understanding how a change in the performance of one subsystem affects the rest of the vehicle.
