MetadataShow full item record
This technical report describes the contents of a Microsoft Access database developed in support of the Workforce Modeling and Simulation Education and Training for Lifelong Learning project. The catalog contains searchable information about 253 courses from 23 U.S. academic institutions. While not exhaustive, the catalog captures a representative set of the existing training and education in Modeling and Simulation (M&S) available to the DoD acquisition workforce. The Naval Postgraduate School was funded by DASN RDT&E to develop a learning architecture for an educational program that enables members of the DoD acquisition workforce to more effectively implement the use of Modeling and Simulation (M&S) throughout the system acquisition life cycle. In support of the requirements phase of this effort, a catalog of existing resources for M&S education has been constructed. This catalog will fulfill the following objectives: 1. Assist in the overall assessment of the availability of M&S education for acquisition workforce members. 2. Facilitate the gap analysis between desired educational skill requirements and the learning objectives accomplished by existing courses and programs. 3. Answer specific questions regarding the available education including delivery methods, costs and program lengths. A detailed discussion of the catalog contents, how it is to be used, and a description of a future update expected in a later phase of the effort are included in this report. The background and overview of the project are provided in appendix A. The purpose of this technical report is to accompany the delivery of the database to the sponsor. Combined, this technical report and the education catalog serve to satisfy the first deliverable of FY07 for the project specified in ASN (RDA) CHENG Task Statement 126.96.36.199.
