Abstract:

Have you ever wondered why models and simulations MS are used in the Army This report provides readers with some insight into the reasons, and also examines the difficulties in using MS when one scenarios determines the outcome of another scenarioss when it should not. Where the training objectives of one scenario threaten the training success of another, it is necessary to resort to asynchronous nonsimultaneous linkage so that one set of events feeds but does not govern the outcome of the other. This report addresses the following questions 1. How did the Army arrive at the current stage of MS development 2. What is asynchronous linkage and why does the Army need it 3. How should the Army train leadership 4. What new barriers has new technology brought to the use of MS in training events 5. What changes are needed to ensure MS success
