Abstract:

This report summarizes key outcomes from a half-day workshop on Simulation in Training held as part of the Defence Human Sciences Symposium DHSS in November 2012. The workshop involved presentations on simulation-based training SBT research within DSTO, and syndicate group discussions aimed at addressing key questions relating to SBT. The workshop outcomes highlighted the need for the research community to obtain more evidence regarding the cost-effectiveness of simulation and for the defence client to adopt more rigorous processes when acquiring and evaluating simulation. At present, knowledge gaps are limiting the research communitys ability to provide Australian Defence Force ADF customers with sound advice regarding the effectiveness of SBT and for the ADF to fully realize the benefits associated with SBT.
