Abstract : The Naval Health Research Center (NHRC) has used its modeling and simulation expertise to develop and update conventional U.S. Air Force medical assets since 2004. The objective of this study was to leverage medical modeling and simulation advantages to provide recommendations for allowance standard configurations based on the Air Force Ophthalmology Augmentation Team (FFEYE) operational and clinical requirements. NHRC analysts reviewed the FFEYE, analyzed clinical requirements with subject matter experts, and used modeling and simulation tools to develop the operationally-based and patient-driven recommended 917F line list. The Unit Type Code capabilities, operational requirements, and materiel solutions were identified, and issues of modernization, clinical requirement, standardization, and redundancy were addressed. Total changes resulted in a reduction in weight by 16%, cube by 20%, and cost by 3%, or $10,875.
