Back Balancing Operational Success and Energy Efficiency in Marine Expeditionary Missions through Model-Based Systems Engineering, Simulation Analysis, and Dynamic Dashboard Development

This research uses Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) to examine both materiel and non-materiel factors regarding the conduct of an operationally successful, and energy efficient, Marine expeditionary mission. We conduct research to leverage benefits of continuing advances in experimental design, integrated with simulation of a relevant scenario based on operational concepts described in Expeditionary Force (EF) 21, to investigate the tradespace linking operational and energy metrics. We will then use the results as inputs to a dynamic “Dashboard” display. This allows exploration of mission related possibilities with input to decision makers and commanders.
There are three primary parts of the study for FY15:
- Use team of 8 SE students to examine operational effectiveness compared to energy efficiency as part of a challenging MEB mission. Develop systems architecture, appropriate metrics, relevant operational scenario (with sponsor input), and simulation.
- Use OR thesis student to conduct more in depth analytical study leveraging work done by SE capstone team.
- Use doctoral student and research associate to develop a dynamic dashboard to better communicate design trades, based on models generated from student capstone project and thesis.
