The system by which the U.S. Navy trains personnel is modeled using the SLAM computer language. By incorporating both network simulation techniques and discrete event logic, the flow of students from a Recruit Training Center (RTC) through the Basic Electricity and Electronics (BEE) schools, the “A” schools and eventually to the fleet, is modeled to a level of detail represented by an individual BEE/“A” school classroom. Inputs for the model include the daily influx of trainees into an RTC for each classification, as well as the various drop, attrition and setback rates.
Since the objective of the study was to allow Navy representation to identify potential bottlenecks prior to their occurrence, the output variables depict both resources utilization and queuing statistics. The simulation model was executed, and the resulting outputs were used to test hypotheses.
