23 June 2000 Air Force hierarchy of models: a look inside the great pyramid
Author Affiliations +
The widely-used Air Force hierarchy of models and simulations is generally depicted as a four-level pyramid; ranging from Engineering/Component Level up to Theater/Campaign Level. While it does present a concise picture of the scope of military models and simulations, it gives the impression that there is a smooth and natural transition from one level to the next. That is not the case. In fact, there is a great variance in degree of complexity from one level to the next. This paper looks at the state- of-practice in modeling and simulation in the context of this hierarchy; and in particular, at traditional and revolutionary techniques involving inter-level relationships.
