Abstract : The Design and Development Tools for the Systems Engineering Experience Accelerator (SEEA) tools development efforts fall into four major categories simulation tools for building and testing simulation models that mimic the behavior and results of acquisition programs, experience building tools that provide the structure for such system engineering experiences, learning assessment tools to measure the efficacy, and EA infrastructure changes to support this work. The simulation and experience building development projects achieved completion of the requirements and use cases, a review of existing tools to leverage, the development of a Prototype Sim Builder with GUI for model building and Phase Editor, Event Editor, Artifact Integrator respectively. Included capability was the manipulation of sub-models for modularity purposes and model archiving/curation and the development of a Prototype Sim Tuner that allows testing of model behavior drilled down to variables of interest. The tools are now at the stage where they are ready to be evaluated by external users for their use in Experience and Simulation development. An iterative development approach was quite successful at providing incremental functionality that was reviewed with its potential users throughout the research effort, prioritizing the most important features and delivering working prototypes throughout the effort.
