Abstract

This work is motivated by the need for the Australian Defence Force to produce the right number of trained aircrew in the right place at the right time. It is critical to understand the impact of structural/resourcing policies on the ability to maintain squadron capability, both for individual squadrons and jointly across the Force. By combining techniques in experimental design, simulation, data analysis and optimization, we have created an automated system to efficiently identify significant relationships between simulation parameters and squadron capability, as well as propose optimal parameter ranges for each individual squadron. The interplay of competing demands between squadrons was t..
