Abstract
The design and layout of the bare base requires the assimilation and analysis of data from several sources of guidance. Without full consideration of this guidance, bare base planning may become time-consuming and inconsistent. The development of personal computer based bare base planning model would significantly improve the process of establishing an operational bare base. A computer modeling developed and structured for field development would simplify and expedite bare base planning and would help to minimize the time between conceptualization and operation of a bare base. The research proposed for Phase I work would first identify user requirements to enable program utility and products to become effective tools for field employment. Planning parameters will be established which will define program flexibility and allow analysis and incorporation of site specific factors. Planning modules will be developed which will reflect bare base development priorities both in terms of mission accomplishment and in terms of impact on other planning modules. Planning factors will be identified for each planning module aand interrelationships between each planning module will be delineated and incorporated into software programs in an input/output model format. Specific input requirements for certain planning modules would be structured to be delivered as output data from interrelated planning modules. The final product from Phase I development is expected to be a software program which would produce a narrative listing of facility requirements, concerns, and developmental sequence for a generic bare base layout. The model would be structured in the delineation of planning parameters to reflect varying levels of flexibility to allow mission and planning variances to accommodate site specific characteristics/requirements. Phase II work will work to develop software to translate the narrative requirements and concerns produced by Phase I research into graphic modeling.
