An Education and Training Simulation of the USAF Base Engineer Automated Management System.
Kibbee, J.; And Others
As part of an overall education and training program to instruct Air Force Base Civil Engineering personnel in the concepts and use of the Base Engineer Automated Management System (BEAMS), a simulation of the system was developed, covering a period of one week at a hypothetical Air Force Base. The simulation, which gives students experience in using BEAMS as part of their daily activities at their bases, consists of a data base and a series of transactions that update the base. The sequence and interdependence of the various transactions are described in an accompanying scenario. Because the simulation was specified for use in a number of different courses, oriented toward both management education and technician training, it was designed to be independent and self-contained, as well as modular. Therefore, it can be adapted easily to any of the courses. (Author/BH)
