Abstract : A current DOD thrust to develop and apply modularity approaches, tools and standards to training simulator development and acquisition is expected to yield benefits in reduced cost and acquisition time, as well as improved supportability. Top-down functional design of stand alone modules and well-defined interfaces will enhance simulator system designs. This paper examines the effects and benefits of modularity which are expected to increase readiness through earlier trainer availability dates and increased supportability. The derivative effect of modularity appears to provide new options that can operate to support increased defense readiness. (Author)
