Abstract
The Missions and Means Framework (MMF) has been primarily used to examine and develop combat operation models that examine the matching of military tasks associated with the combat operations in question with the military means needed to successfully achieve those objectives. For a military operational thread to execute successfully, it must often interact with other military operational threads that provide essential capabilities required at specific times. In Phase I-Base, the IABSRI will use Axiomatic Design scientific principles for complex interactions among the operational threads to formulate the MMF paradigm. From the MMF paradigm, IABSRI will model the ontology for matching the military assets to the mission. The IABSRI will then create the knowledge base for matching the military assets with the capabilities requirements to any mission tasks. In Phase I-Option, IABSRI proposes to use the multi-agent modeling and simulation concepts to design a small-scale experimental test bed to simulate the interaction effects between logistical thread and combat operation to determine any favorable or unfavorable outcomes. We propose to trace back any unfavorable outcomes to material and/or personnel state changes up to specific tasks and/or capabilities that caused the mission failures. Phase I innovation would benefit the construction industry.
