Summary Sentence: On the Application of Simulation to Aviation Analysis

Full Summary: On the Application of Simulation to Aviation Analysis

We will discuss the gamut of the simulation life cycle, from the business need for developing a simulation, through its conceptual design, implementation, verification and validation, and finally its use in analytical problems. An aviation simulation recently developed at The MITRE Corporation for use in strategic planning of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) future infrastructure investment will be the running example used throughout the talk.

Among the questions we will seek to answer are, when is simulation an appropriate vehicle for analysis? Under what conditions should a new simulation be built? How does one design a model that addresses current research needs, while maintaining the flexibility for the future? What implementation technologies are available, and why choose a particular one? How does one validate a simulation whose purpose is to predict *future* results? How does one use a simulation to conduct an analysis? Along the way we will develop some insights into the aviation industry, including its probable future.

So join us for this talk
