Abstract:

Because of their extreme complexity, many military operations research problems cannot be examined analytically, but instead must be examined by means of computer simulation. However, the use of simulation in attempting to locate an optimum solution often degenerates into a trial-and-error process. The paper describes a study aimed at providing the simulation user with efficient methods of searching for optimum computer simulation solutions. Author
