By William B. Rouse, Kenneth R. Boff

From modeling and simulation to video games and entertainmentWith contributions from leaders in structures and organizational modeling, behavioral and social sciences, computing and visualization, and gaming and leisure, Organizational Simulation either articulates the grand imaginative and prescient of immersive environments and indicates, intimately, easy methods to comprehend it. This ebook bargains extraordinary perception into the leading edge of the sphere, because it was once written by means of those that really researched, designed, built, deployed, advertised, bought, and critiqued modern-day top organizational simulations.The assurance is split into 4 sections:* creation outlines the necessity for organizational simulation to help strategic considering, layout of remarkable platforms, and organizational studying, together with the performance and know-how required to permit this help* Behaviors covers the kingdom of data of person, crew, and staff behaviors and function, how functionality can most sensible be supported, how functionality is suffering from nationwide modifications, and the way organizational functionality can top be measured* Modeling describes the newest ways to modeling and simulating humans, teams, groups, and corporations, in addition to narrative contexts and organizational environments in which those entities act, drawing from a wealthy set of modeling equipment and instruments* Simulations and video games illustrates a variety of fielded simulations, video games, and leisure, together with the equipment and instruments hired for designing, constructing, deploying, and comparing those structures, in addition to the social implications for the linked groups that experience emergedAddressing all degrees of organizational simulation structure with theories and purposes, and permitting applied sciences for every, Organizational Simulation deals scholars and execs the most popular reference and functional toolbox for this dynamic box.

A. with distinction at the Harvard Business School. He lives with his wife Stephanie and daughter Amanda in Los Angeles. Dr. Alexander H. Levis is the Chief Scientist of the Air Force, on leave from George Mason University, Fairfax, VA where he is University Professor of Electrical, Computer, and Systems Engineering and where he heads the System Architectures Laboratory of the C31 Center.

Prior to starting his PhD he was a scientist with ABB Corporate Research. Over the course of his engineering career, he has worked on several automation systems design and development projects in USA, Europe and India. He has a Masters in Integrated Manufacturing Systems Engineering from North Carolina State University and a Bachelors in Manufacturing Processes and Automation Engineering from Delhi Institute of Technology. Robert N. Shearer is a Branch Chief in the Warfighter Training Research Division of the Air Force Research Laboratory.

In this section, we summarize the workshop process and overall findings. Roughly 50 experts participated from the areas of modeling and simulation, behavioral and social sciences, computing, artificial intelligence, gaming, and entertainment. These experts also included many people with extensive experience in business and military operations. Participants were asked to assess the organizational simulation capabilities needed to address five challenge scenarios that are elaborated below’: Enterprise Systems 0 NASA Columbia 0 Command and Control - C2 0 Domestic Crisis - G8 0 Joint Urban Operations - JUO People were assigned to working groups - one per challenge problem - and asked to envision the important phenomena to be incorporated within organizational simulations targeted at these scenarios, as well as the nature of human interaction with these phenomena.
