Abstract : The report summarizes a research effort which has resulted in development of a general-purpose computer program, OPTIMIZER, for aiding analysts assigned the task of obtaining improved simulation solutions. In view of evaluation results, there is strong evidence that analysts of varying levels of experience can profit from use of the complementary aid offered by the OPTIMIZER. The program promises to provide an analyst with the capability to augment his problem-solving procedures with new information and insights provided by statistically-based algorithms and to realize significant savings in valuable analysis time.
