MX4000 Selected Topics in the Application of Engineering Modeling & Simulation

This course provides the DoD acquisition professional with an overview of how typical engineering modeling and simulation applications support the acquisition process. A systematic approach will be used to demonstrate the function of physics based modeling and simulation in the design, production, operation and maintenance of complex systems. The course is broken into four general topic areas that address specific engineering features related to land vehicle systems, sea based systems, aviation systems and space-satellite systems. Investigations into the feasibility, utility, and risk of engineering modeling and simulation in each of these focus areas will be highlighting through the use of engineering case studies. Upon completion of this course, students should have a general awareness of engineering modeling and simulation applications in support of the acquisition lifecycle. This course may not be used to fulfill ME/AE degree program requirements.
