Abstract:

The TIME STRIKE optimization model was developed in 1995 for use by the cognizant U.S. Air Force agencies to investigate requirements for conventional munitions and the feasibility of operational plans based on their availability and current budgets. The problem addressed here is Is the output of TIME STRIKE accurate when compared to a simulation This thesis develops a computer simulation, called SimStrike, which models all the same things TIME STRIKE does, using the same data, however with randomness used where TIME STRIKE uses expectations. It was found that TIME STRIKE and SimStrike produce similar results.
