In this research effort we developed a discrete-event simulation to replicate the flow of officers from their commissioning source to their first unit of assignment. The model is comprised of a series of Excel macros, updatable Excel input files, and a PromodelC simulation. This model provides a tool for decision makers to conduct what if analysis-specifically, exploration of BOLC-B course capacity changes, BOLC-B allocation strategies, BOLC-B scheduling rules, and ROTC commissioning date profile adjustments. A series of output tables and graphics capture the effects of these parameter changes on key stakeholder metrics of interest including ROTC hold population, BOLC-B wait times, time from commission to first unit, and timing of LT unit arrivals in relation to ARFORGEN cycles.
