Modeling and Simulation (M&S) is used throughout DoD system development and acquisition to improve and lend confidence to the decisions made by program developers and leadership. In order to realize the benefits of M&S, the DoD acquisition workforce must understand the available tools. The DoD Modeling and Simulation Coordination Office recognized a need to educate the acquisition workforce. To meet this need, the Naval Postgraduate School partnered with six universities recognized for their prominence in M&S education. We developed 16 full academic courses, two resident short courses, ten online courses, 11 standalone case studies, an updated Acquisition ManagerÃ¢ s Guide to M&S, and a longitudinal assessment plan for evaluating the courses over the long term. All of these materials are intended for broad distribution in the public domain to maximize their usefulness. This report describes these products in detail.
