Computer-Based Modeling and Simulation
Resources and Assessment Directorate, J-8 (Force Structure), Joint Staff
Addx supported the Warfighting Analysis Division (WAD) model-based study in three overlapping phases. In Phase 1, Addx acquired, manipulated, and validated the models’ input data. In Phase 2, Addx configured and executed computer model runs, using the Unix-based Analytical Computer Suite. In Phase 3, Addx subjected the models’ output to analyses: Addx post-processed the outcomes, identified results that were erroneous or anomalous, corrected inputs that had produced errors, and reran models to confirm that we had improved them. We then represented the data in briefs, reports, graphics, and spreadsheets.
