Abstract : Concurrent with the development of the base engineer automated management system (BEAMS), plans were developed for the education to civil engineer management level personnel at the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) in the operation and use of this new system. As an integral part of this education, a computer simulation was developed to provide the students with hands-on training and experience with BEAMS. The development of this simulation paralleled the development of BEAMS itself, and required modification on several occasions as BEAMS was altered in its development. The simulation was designed to create the conditions, atmosphere and operational situations that would be prevalent at a typical Air Force base operating under the BEAMS concept. It was designed to take place over a period of one week and to encompass most of the activity which might reasonably be expected to occur in Civil Engineering organizations at bases anywhere in the world.
