The paper describes insights, procedures, and limitations involved in the semi-automatic solution of large-scale computer simulation problems. It uses the experience gained in solving test problems by both a human analyst and an automatic OPTIMIZER program. Particular attention is paid to tasks performed by the man but not the machine and tasks best done by the machine. Guidelines are suggested for incorporating some of the human problem-solving processes as a first step toward interactive semi-automatic procedures.
