Abstract:

One of the remarkable things I notice when I go to Modelling Simulation MS forums such as this one is when three-quarters of the room is silent and the remaining quarter doing all the talking already knows most of the answers anyway. Although the retention of vast corporate knowledge is certainly a plus in our community, it does not bode well for our future when the walls we place between ourselves and key leaders are self-imposed. The purpose of this lecture is to encourage the three-quarters to meet the few of us halfway by gaining a measure of self-confidence through a professional MS reading programme. Most of those present are not here because of a keen desire to programme although a few can. These lecture series are conducted to empower the implementer. If you are here to gather information in support of a senior General and are unable to articulate the MS world view, we are doing you and ourselves a disservice. That is why I have compiled a very innocent list of answers to common questions and included the supported web sites so you can have your own on-line MS library. Whether we realize or not, those of you looking for an answer need something more instantaneous than reading an entire book. What I have done is by no means exclusive to the selection placed in your hands, but it is indeed a start.
