PROJECT SUMMARY To make simulation-based exercise development efficient, it is important that scenarios be developed and executed ¿on-the-fly¿ in an automated fashion with minimal reliance on software personnel. To this end, what is needed is an intelligent scenario/script building capability that enables training personnel to rapidly assemble and ¿test-drive¿ incident scenarios, and that can be smoothly integrated with simulation-based training systems. This capability can then serve as the executive agent, and be a critical component of simulation-based training systems. This project is concerned with the development of an automated scenario/script builder that is: graphical; compliant with current web/software standards; employs non-proprietary implementation with open interfaces for ease of integration; and capable of workflow monitoring and execution simulation. Phase I of this effort is concerned with developing a prototype of this system to provide convincing technical evidence that the innovative scenario/script builder does exhibit the requisite graphical workflow design and execution capability. ANTICIPATED BENEFITS/POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS The scenario/script builder will be interoperable with third party simulation-based training systems for emergency preparedness and response training exercises. Potential military and commercial applications include incident management and response, emergency preparedness, and crisis action planning and execution.
