Abstract : This report documents research performed for the Integrated Model Development Environment (IMDE) by Armstrong Laboratory, Logistics Research Division, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. IMDE is a simulation development system designed to demonstrate how an object oriented modeling approach embedded within a graphical user interface could make large-scale logistics models easier to develop and less expensive to maintain, as well as improving configuration control, data analysis, collaborative development, and model reuse. The IMDE system was demonstrated through the development of an object-oriented fighter airbase logistics model. A significant achievement in the effort was the automated conversion of Logistics Composite Model (LCOM) into IMDE objects.
