An implicit model development process for bounding external, seemingly intangible/non-quantifiable factors
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2017-06)
This research expands the modeling and simulation (M&S) body of knowledge through the development of an Implicit Model Development Process (IMDP). When augmented to traditional Model Development Processes (MDP), the IMDP ...
Improved conceptual models methodology (ICoMM) for validation of non-observable systems
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2015-12)
This dissertation expands the current view of development and validation of conceptual models (CoM) of non-observable systems (NOSs) by using systems engineering (SE) and systems architecture (SA) methods during the model ...
Identifying the limits of an integrated training environment using human abilities and affordance theory
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2014-06)
This research investigated the development and use of an analytical assessment methodology anchored in systems engineering principles, affordance theory, and human abilities, to measure the potential of integrated training ...
Flexible space-filling designs for complex system simulations
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2013-06)
In order to better understand the complex nature of a system, analysts need efficient experimental designs that can explore high-dimensional simulation models with multiple outputs. These simulation models are critical to ...
Learning from Noisy and Delayed Rewards The Value of Reinforcement Learning to Defense Modeling and Simulation
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2012-09)
Modeling and simulation of military operations requires human behavior models capable of learning from experi-ence in complex environments where feedback on action quality is noisy and delayed. This research examines the ...
