Abstract:

A network modeling and analysis technique called SAINT II has been developed to model and analyze complex Air Force man-machine systems. The modeling vehicle developed is a set of network symbols and terminology and the analysis vehicle is computer simulation. SAINT 2 obtains system performance measures for networks that represent a mission consisting of a set of tasks performed by a crew of operators having a complement of equipment in the face of environmental factors. These system performance measures are obtained via a simulation approach. Human engineering considerations are reflected in the modeling technique by means of task parameter specifications, task precedence and sequencing relations, and psycho-social and environmental factors affecting crew performance. This report describes the SAINT 2 simulation program, which includes a number of new capabilities not available in the original SAINT program.
