The Naval Health Research Center NHRC has used its modeling and simulation expertise to develop and update conventional U.S. Air Force medical assets since 2004. The objective of this study was to leverage medical modeling and simulation advantages to provide recommendations for allowance standard AS configurations based on the Air Force Medical Urology Team FFPPT operational and clinical requirements. NHRC analysts reviewed the FFPPT, analyzed clinical requirements with subject matter experts, and used modeling and simulation tools to develop an operationally based and patient-driven recommended 917H line list. The Unit Type Code capabilities, operational requirements, and materiel solutions were identified, addressing issues of modernization, clinical requirement, standardization, and redundancy. In this study the main rationale for change was redundancy. Total changes resulted in a reduction in weight by 49.9, cube by 42, and cost by 16 per set.
