Abstract:

This thesis completed implementation of an amphibious ship-to-shore simulation called SHIPSHOR for use on an IBM Personal Computer. The investigation included a description of the physical system being modelled, an explanation of the logic used by the model, a validation section, sensitivity analysis, and a thorough documentation section. The model is functioning and producing credible output as exhibited in the validation chapter. It is capable of operating under a variety of conditions to produce results which illustrate the build-up ashore of personnel and fire-power versus time. Its main application, as suggested within, is for use as a decision aid to the commander in operational planning and to the staff officer in procurement planning. To be effective, SHIPSHOR needs continuous validation and modification. Model building is an evolutionary process which should not cease until the usefulness of the model has expired. Originator-supplied keywords include Amphibious Movement Simulation, Ship-to-Shore Simulation, Simulation for IBM PC, Computer Programs, Basic Programming Languages, Flow charting, Computer graphics.
