Abstract:

VIMCOS 2 is a prototype game for the design of management control systems in a man-machine, real-time environment, specifically, short-term resource allocation and control of aircraft maintenance resources at an airbase. Using JOSS, VIMCOS 2 demonstrates scheduling techniques, displays information, and uncovers error-handling philosophies. JOSS supplies the simulated environment, the players information system, and aids in the scheduling task. In the abstracted environment of an airbase four events happen aircraft land, and maintenance jobs are discovered, started, and completed. A player can devise the scenario as he proceeds or can operate against one stored in JOSS memory. Modified author abstract
