Abstract:

Rands Strategic Assessment Center is a new research facility designed for the development and testing of improved methodologies for the analysis of strategic forces. This note describes the concepts and objectives that have guided the facility design and the methodological developments during the first year. The methodology to be demonstrated in the facility during January 1981, uses the flexible structure of conflict gaming, but resorts to the discipline of analytic models to control the behavior of the game teams. The combination is expected to provide an improved method for the analysis of strategic forces--one with richer contexts and clearer relationships between inputs and outputs than is now available through any single analytical technique.
