The Base Operations-Maintenance Simulator BOMS, a computer program written in Simscript language, simulates the essential characteristics of an Air Force Base. It represents a SAC B-52KC-135 organization, but can, with slight modifications represent most other single base operations. Three separate computer programs which make up the BOMS are described. The Data Generator combines a flying schedule with random failures, generated by a Monte Carlo process, with the resources required for repair. This data, along with input parameters describing pertinent characteristics of the base, is fed to the Main Program. The Main Program simulates, in great detail, the minute-by-minute activities of the base. The Analysis Program summarizes the output of the Main Program and prints the reports.
