The model has been designed to simulate the complex system of interacting operations and logistics support events found in Air Force organizations. The model accepts system and subsystem hardware design characteristics in terms of reliability and maintainability parameters. Inputs also in clude quantities of support resources people, parts, equipment, and facilities, management policies governing availability and use of these resources, and maintenance inspection requirements. Given proper inputs, then, SAMSOM simulates a wide range of management policies, operations schedules, and related logistics support events and requirements. It can be used to examine such activity for extended periods of time for different weapon systems at several bases or locations. Author
