Simulation Edition

The Simulation Edition is used during the early design as a front-end analysis tool. During later development and operational phases it is used as a Logistic Support Analysis, validation and system management tool.

The RamLog Simulation Edition includes a simulation capability. It can be used as a standalone application or in conjunction with the Information Management and Failure Data Editions. The user has the ability to add and manipulate the system data required for simulation. It provides a flexible, easy-to-use modeling interface and is based on an object-based Monte Carlo Simulation Engine.

The Simulation Edition provides the user with the ability to create and “Run” various scenarios. An Arena Model, (or a Theater of Operation), defines the operational and support environments. Any number of systems and also different system types, can be deployed and simulated for a pre-defined time period. The Simulation Edition consist of:

  • Libraries: to define common data elements between the systems (Suppliers, Items & Support Equipment and Personnel)
  • Physical Breakdown Structure (PBS): to define the physical breakdown of the system
  • Failure Analysis: providing a Failure Mode Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) capability
  • Task Identification and Task Network: to identify and specify the task sequence for a specific failure mode
  • Reliability Block Diagram and Fault Tree Analysis (RBD/FTA Models): to define equipment redundancies and failure critical paths. Event Planner: to schedule pre-planned events
  • Operational Model (OPM): to define the operation scenario, life and/or mission profile for systems
  • Deploy and Support Model (DSM): to define the deployment and support scenario for systems
  • Animation Model: to define the outputs and animation requirement for the simulation
  • Replication Viewer: to provide the results for each replication (Simulation Run)
