Abstract : The DOD Modeling and Simulation Master Plan (MSMP) is authorized by DoD Directive (DoDD) 5000.59, DoD Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Management, January 4, 1994. DoD M&S policies, organizational responsibilities, and management procedures are outlined in DoDD 5000.59 and the Charter for the DoD Executive Council for Modeling and Simulations (EXCIMS). This MSMP is the Department of Defense's first step in directing, organizing, and concentrating its M&S capabilities and efforts on resolving commonly shared problems. The immense breadth and scope of DoD M&S uses, combined with the relative immaturity of many segments of the larger DoD M&S community and its technology, ensure that this first iteration is incomplete. Over time, with the active participation and support of the DoD M&S community, this plan will mature to address the full range of issues confronting DoD M&S. Many policy and technical issues may not be identified or resolved; however, this plan, with the management framework and policies established in DoDD 5000.59 and EXCIMS Charter, provides a means to achieve common technical solutions and policy consensus. The DoD MSMP is intended to be dynamic and flexible--a living document that will evolve as consensus develops on policy issues and the technology matures.
