Abstract
The SBIR project Phase II synthetic environment to be created by Simulex, Inc. will encompass many useful scenarios, options, and capabilities. By implementing an agent-based crew model incorporating different scenarios within a single low-risk and -cost environment, the user can examine the effects of Navy business processes upon ship operating costs and readiness. The SBIR project will be the perfect tool to study the costs and performances of various crew attributes and configuration aboard a U.S. Navy warship. The results of technology insertion on crew structure and training will be readily determinable and the effects of the different scenarios on the entire ship’s crew will able to be studied via measurements of stress levels, workloads, and ship readiness.
