MetadataShow full item record
This thesis presents a deterministic simulation model for the dynamic selection of offensive tactical movement routes. The factors which influence route selection are identified, and the performance objectives that are to be optimized are defined. Alternative modeling concepts are investigated, and one method is selected for implementation. The organization, data structure, and computational aspects that were developed to implement this concept are explained. A FORTRAN program listing of the route selection model is presented. The test situations in which the model was exercised are documented, and the conclusions resulting from these tests are presented. Potential expansions and applications of this dynamic route selection model are also discussed.
