Abstract : The Concepts Evaluation Model (CEM) is a fully automated, deterministic combat simulation that can simulate months of theater land and air combat in a few hours on a cumputer. A unique feature of the CEM is the simulation and automation of the commanders' decision processes and utilization of resources at all echelons from division through theater. Results of combat are sensitive to the mix of major weapons within the combat forces, and the pace of combat depends on the expenditure and attrition of resources along with the associated resupply. This document contains a complete description of the latest version in the progression of CEM development, CEM VI, encompassing the enhancements implemented at the US Army Concepts Analysis Agency up to December 1984. Major changes from previous versions of the CEM include a fundamentally new attrition calculation; a different force ratio calculation; a capability to designate certain types of weapons as possible replacements for other years; and a capability to input the initial on-hand quantities of personnel, supplies, and each type weapon in each unit. Keywords: Combat simulation; Command and control groups.
