Abstract:

SEAC is a computer model used to conduct a large class of engineering analyses for COMMZ operations. SEAC employs a unique representation of the COMMZ to reflect the geography of the theater, and organizational support planning. Engineer requirements associated with facility and installation construction, repair, and maintenance are calculated based on the time-phased arrival of units, their movement and locations in the COMMZ, and the results of enemy units, their movement and locations in the COMMZ, and the results of enemy attacks as determined by an internal threatdamage sub-model. Engineer capability is based on the various skills found in engineer units used in the COMMZ, and distinguished by service and national affiliations. SEAC is a computer model based on object-oriented programming design techniques, and uses the process view of simulation to achieve its purpose. As a direct consequence of its hierarchical design, SEAC is highly modular and can be easily extended to examine related engineer problems in the COMMZ. This manual documents SEACs code, data structure, and design. It also includes sections describing various model output, considerations that should be used when assembling the various data bases, and the more prominent features of the software environment in which SEAC was developed.
