Abstract : AURA(Army Unit Readiness/Sustainability Assessor) is a Monte Carlo discrete-event computerized simulation model intended for analyzing the interrelations among the resources associated with a set of combat units, and the capability of those units to generate combat missions in a dynamic, rapidly evolving wartime environment. This volume is the second of two being prepared as a User's Manual for AURA. It discusses the input requirements, procedures, and formats, and provides a sample problem based on a hypothetical Army combat vehicle. These detailed discussions provide the only complete explanations for some of the numerous control options available with AURA and must be considered mandatory reading for potential AURA users. The sample problem illustrates an AURA data base and the various outputs available with AURA.
