Development of a dynamic simulation model offers an innovative means for analyzing the complex feedback interactions that link product support, infrastructure size and manpower levels. The system dynamics methodology provides a powerful model-building foundation with a proven track record. System dynamics captures the non-linear feedback causality that drives system behavior over time. The resulting model will assist in quantifying tradeoffs among cost, performance and personnel. Model users will be able to define alternative "what-if?" scenarios and trace the consequences of these scenarios on infrastructure size, manning and cost over time.
