Abstract : Based on, and illustrated by, experience in designing a computer model of a weather-sensitive STRICOM operation, a set of guidelines is suggested for building simulation models of military operations for the purpose of quantifying the value of weather services. Results from the STRICOM model are presented as an argument supporting the desirability for the weather services to engage in this kind of analysis. (Author)
