Abstract:

This paper will describe a system that has recently been developed by the General Research Corporation which provides the capability to automate the assembly of simulation models. The system was developed for the US Army Logistics Doctrine, Systems and Readiness Agency, a Class II Activity of the Department of the Army Deputy Chief of Staff for Logistics. It has been tested and proven to operate satisfactorily. AUTASIM is the acronym for the Automated Assembly of Simulation Models. It is that part of the MAWLOGS System that creates simulation models. It represents a significant innovation in modeling methodology that should be of considerable interest to Army operations research analysts. The description of the AUTASIM system is the purpose of this paper. The AUTASIM system consists of three elements a Module Library, a Model Description Language and a Model Assembler program. The Model Assembler and the Model Description Language represent the primary innovations in creating simulation models.
