Return-On-Investment

  • Defense invests daily in operations and preparedness
  • Simulation makes a real and positive difference in
    • National military readiness
    • National productivity
  • Simulation provides
    • Efficiency
    • Effectiveness
    • Risk reduction

Efficiency

(Examples)

Cost Quantification in Terms of Savings or Avoidance

  • Higher mission availability
  • Increase operational system availability
  • Transportation avoidance
  • Reduces/eliminates expendables costs
  • Less procurement & operation costs

Effectiveness

(Examples)

  • Positive Contributions that are seldom quantified
    • Improved proficiency/performance
    • Provides activities otherwise impossible short of combat
    • Provides neutral & opposition forces
    • Greater observation/assessment/analysis capability

Risk Reduction

(Examples)

  • Safety
  • Environment
  • Equipment

The Goal

  • Balance simulation applications & capabilities
  • MAXIMIZE Return-On-Investment
