SIMULATION MODELS FOR SPACE LOGISTICS ANALYSIS 630353
The use of computer-based mathematical models to simulate space logistics operations provides the program planner and systems engineer with information needed in selecting the flight transportation system, the mission profile, the scope of the space activities supported, funding requirements, and schedules. Monte Carlo techniques are used in implementing the simulation model. An example involving the furnishing of logistics to an extraterrestrial base is introduced. The inputs to the model are discussed, and typical results are shown.
