Abstract : The paper demonstrates that the statistical experimental design technique aids the analysis of complex simulation by efficient selection of the computer runs to be made and thereby saves computer time. Further the analysis is more complete, showing that the variables act jointly and measures the goodness of fit of predicted values. As an example, the sensitivity tests on changes in air sortie effectiveness on a land campaign are discussed. The techniques, terminology and calculation methods with a bibliography are discussed in an appendix for those who wish to learn more about the technique. (Author)
