Abstract:

SARSIM is a highly flexible, user-oriented model. It simulates Coast Guard response to an input caseload scenario, i.e., people andor property in distress. The automatic summary output from the model e.g., response times, resource utilization statistics, etc. gives the user considerable insight for judging the effectiveness of the SAR system with regard to each input scenario. The user if offered a variety of modes in which to operate the model. For example, he can prepare, automatically, a multitude of clinet demand scenarios. He can perturb the SAR resource inventory, i.e., vary the number and classes of resources, their physical capabilities, their deployment location, and manning levels. He may also choose to exercise the model with different server disciplines resource assignment schemata. In addition, the user can supply criteria to be applied to the simulated case history output for additional optional analysis. Author
