Abstract : The current focus of Project 522C is on the evaluation of an interactive simulation modeling system called AISIM (Automated Interactive Simulation Modeling). The purpose of this system is to assist systems engineers to perform conceptual phase systems engineering activities and analyses. A major AISIM evaluation activity was a hands-on test of AISIM conducted at the developer's facility. Five benchmark problems were used for these tests. This report presents a preliminary evaluation of AISIM based on the results of those tests. The tests showed that AISIM was easy to learn and use and produced accurate results for the models developed. Further, it is recommended that AISIM be used on a trial basis for some acquisition projects.
