USING A SIMULATION MODEL TO DETERMINE THE OPTIMUM NUMBER OF PILOTS IN AN AIR FORCE

M. Albertyn, S.D. Trichard

Abstract


ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The key objective is to present a simulation model to determine the optimum number of pilots in an air force. Background information about the simulation project, and a cursory description of the system under consideration, are provided. The Simul8 simulation software package, the basic concepts of the simulation model, the determination of adequate samples sizes, and simulation model verification and validation are discussed. Generic examples of typical results are shown, and conclusions about the simulation project are presented.

AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Die hoofdoelwit is om n simulasiemodel voor te hou wat gebruik word om die optimale aantal vlieiers in n lugmag te bepaal. Agtergrond inligting oor die simulasieprojek en n oppervlakkige beskrywing van die stelsel onder beskouing word voorsien. Die Simul8 simulasiesagtewarepakket, die basiese konsepte van die simulasiemodel, die vasstelling van voldoende monstergroottes, en simulasiemodel verifikasie en validering word bespreek. Generiese voorbeelde van tipiese resultate word getoon, en gevolgtrekkings oor die simulasieprojek word voorgehou.
