Abstract:

Computer-based simulation has always been one of the major techniques used in system analysis but many analysts have objected to the lead-time required to develop a useful model. This is a status report on a capability being developed at The RAND Corporation that attempts to provide the systems analyst with a whole new dimension in the field of simulation and, in particular, offers an opportunity for major decreases in the amount of analysts time required to produce a working simulation model. The Paper reviews some of the deficiencies in the current art of model-building, describes a research project that formed an essential base on which to build this new dimension of capability, and illustrates the progress of the project to date.
