Abstract:

This report describes a preliminary effort to apply simulation modeling software to resource allocation in the 63W10 Wheel Vehicle Repairer training course. The effort was conducted as part of the Training Technology Field Activity TTFA program. Two preliminary models of course operation were built using Micro SAINT software. The report concludes that the complexity of scheduling equipment, instructors, and classes would be significantly eased by software such as Micro SAINT and that improvement in resource allocation depends on scheduling capability. Micro SAINT, however, was seen to lack the input output interface needed for interactive model operation. Keywords Training methodology Army training Computer applications.
