Abstract : The purpose of the model application support package (ASP) is to provide information about the Landing Assault Combat Engagement Model (LACEM), should it be used in future studies. Accreditation of a model requires an assessment of the specific application to determine the suitability of the model to the intended purpose. While this ASP was developed in support of an accreditation process, this document isolates the generic (as opposed to application specific) information about the model. This is so that others who are considering the appropriateness of the model to another application will find this compiled information useful and time saving. The capabilities and limitations of bACEM are rooted in its functionality. Consequently, this document describes the model using the modeling taxonomy for warfare simulation, entitled SIMTAX, that was developed during a series of Military Operations Research Society (MORS) workshops in 1986 and 1987. SIMTAX was published by MORS and distributed by the Joint Staff (Js) as part of their 1989 catalog of models. (KAR) P. 2
