Abstract : This report describes the work done to commercialize the Computer Aided Prototyping System (CAPS). The work that was completed was: (1) Develop the requirements and the documentation to restructure and reengineer the CAPS code to improve efficiency and utility for commercial development. (2) Establish Alpha test sites at Illgen Simulation Technologies, Inc. (ISTI), Monmouth University (MU), the MITRE Corporation and the U.S. Army Communications and Electronics Command at Fort Monmouth (CECOM). (3) Develop a tutorial manual and an installation manual for use at these sites. (4) Apply CAPS to new applications that will demonstrate the tool's usefulness and the ability of new users to understand and work with CAPS. (5) Create a commercialization plan that consists of four related sections. These include a technical plan, managerial plan, marketing plan, and a product support plan.
