Abstract:

This guide provides an overview of the Optimization of Simulation- Based Training Systems OSBATS model and prototype software as applied to an artificial but realistic problem related to Army Aviation training. OSBATS was developed to aid in the design and evaluation of training devices that meet training requirements at the minimum cost or maximum training effectiveness. The goals of this guide are a to illustrate the kinds of solutions to training- system design problems that OSBATS can provide, b to demonstrate the ways in which the model components interact to produce solutions, c to describe the operation of the prototype OSBATS software and rule bases, and d to illustrate how an OSBATS-like model could support the decision making process. The guide describes the operation of the OSBATS software, concentrating on how the results of different calculations can be integrated to support the concept-formulation process and provides the information required to familiarize the user with the installation of the software, the software functions, and the operation of the rule bases.
