JICM 1.0 summary by Bruce W Bennett( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report documents the Joint Contingency Model (JICM), a global war gaming and analysis system that focuses on conflict from major regional contingencies through strategic warfare. The JICM is an outgrowth of the former RAND Strategy Assessment System (RSAS), engineered explicitly to address post-Cold War conflict issues. The JICM has been developed to support balance assessment, contingency analysis, and military training. It handles issues such as strategic mobility, ground combat maneuver and fires (including systems like ATACMS and future technological advances), the activities involved in achieving air or sea superiority, the ability to apply naval and aircraft fires against infrastructure targets or military forces in the field, and supplies and support of military forces. JICM is unique in its attempt to address qualitative factors such as unit cohesion and specialization, training, and national force effectiveness. It also deals with discontinuities in warfare such a breakthroughs and the failure of assaults. It is a global system because it includes, as part of its release, order of battle data for most major countries worldwide, relieving JICM users of the burden of having to develop such information. It also includes base cases covering conflicts in the Persian Gulf and Korea. Thus, the JICM comes as a ready-to-use package, though users will also find it easy to develop new theaters for analysis in the JICM
The RAND SLAM program( Book )

This report describes the RAND SLAM program. The RAND SLAM program allows an analyst to explore the trade-offs inherent in military force structure decisions. More specifically, the program allows an analyst to examine trade-offs among cost, stress, and risk when the requirement for deployed forces varies over time. The RAND SLAM program's unique features allow an analyst to study the effects of varying military requirements on force structure decisions. Optimal force structures can vary dramatically depending on the nature of the threat. For this reason, the RAND SLAM program models contingencies stochastically, acknowledging that military requirements vary unpredictably over time and allowing an analyst to study the implications. The report contains a number of illustrative analyses focusing on the force structure of the U.S. Army. Many of the analyses that have been performed in support of force structure decisions have been very narrowly focused. The power of the RAND SLAM program is that it allows an analyst to perform many different types of analysis under almost any set of assumptions. The program's primary focus is allowing an analyst to determine the lowest-cost force structure for a given requirement and stress level. However, the program can also perform many other types of analyses, such as determining the effect of different requirements on stress levels for a given force structure. The RAND SLAM program was designed to provide as much flexibility as possible. The user determines both the unit of analysis and the time resolution for each set of simulation runs. The program is capable of utilizing any unit of analysis -- individual, company, battalion, brigade, etc. -- and modeling any time resolution -- days, months, quarters, years, etc. The RAND SLAM program allows the user to move beyond the typical analysis of finding the optimal active-reserve mix. The user can create new types of forces and examine their attractiveness under varying assumptions
Main theater warfare modeling in the Rand Strategy Assessment System (3.0) by Rand Corporation( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Note provides an overview of the main theater warfare model developed as part of the RAND Strategy Assessment System (RSAS, Release 3.0), in a game-structured simulation of global conflict. This model covers land and air combat in Central Europe and Korea and is part of a global combat model (CAMPAIGN) that provides a fully integrated treatment of conventional, theater-nuclear, and intercontinental-nuclear warfare worldwide. The model has been designed to answer "What if?" questions quickly, to be used either as a closed simulation or as an interactive game, and to be flexible. It permits the user to vary assumptions about a broad range of qualitative and quantitative issues such as national fighting effectiveness, maximum combat intensity, air-ground interactions, etc. The model is also unique in its treatment of maneuver because it allows the attacker and defender to have explicit concepts of maneuver at corps level and above

Estimating DoD Transportation Spending: Analyses of Contract and Payment Transactions( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In FY 2003, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) spent nearly $7 billion on transportation, travel, and relocation services from commercial enterprises. Given a continuing need to make the most of existing resources, including those used for transportation, the U.S. Transportation Command (TRANSCOM) asked the RAND Corporation to conduct a spend analysis of transportation purchases. This analysis of combined individual contracting action report (DD350) and PowerTrack (PT) data indicates that DoD has additional opportunities to leverage transportation spending, particularly where it uses tenders to purchase transportation services. With such leveraging, TRANSCOM could better manage carriers; reduce rates; and improve quality, delivery, and visibility of services. Such improved management of spending and carriers could reduce DoD's total transportation spending while continuing to meet user requirements. Bringing business currently conducted through tenders under contract could improve incentives and accountability for carriers. Bringing more spending under contracts would also help DoD better meet small business goals
