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 computer. 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 provides a complete description of the input (other than the killer/victim data) and their formats required for the CEM VI, as well as a description of the reports generated by the CEM VI, and its post processor. The structure of the CEM VI input data is indicated along with an explanation of the error diagnostic messages generated by the CEM VI preprocessors is included. References are provided to both Volumes I and II where more complete explanations are provided as to the input data used by CEM VI. Keywords: Input; Command and control systems; Message processing.
