This short course is a module from the Defence Simulation and Modelling MSc. It is delivered by Cranfield University on behalf of the Defence College for Military Capability Integration at the Defence Academy.
The elements of the course are:
experimental design including sampling and ethical considerations
methodology and analysis of statistical data (Inference, ANOVA and Regression)
definition, execution, analysis, present and critical assessment of simulation based experimentation and trials reports
visiting speakers from MOD and defence industry to include operational analysis (OA)
integrated test evaluation and acceptance
- to describe the place and utility of simulation based experimentation and trials within defence core business
- to critically assess the design, planning and execution of simulation based experimentation and trials and the analysis of results
- to critically assess the impact of experimentation and trial constraints on the data collection and analysis methods used
- using simple operational research techniques, calculate appropriate ways to combine or balance multiple variables and benefits in a simulation based experimentation and trials context
- appropriately quantify and graph the results of an experiment or trial and statistically analyse these results in relatively simple cases
- develop effective methods to design, perform, analyse and report a simulation based experiment or trial
This course is a module as part of the Defence Simulation and Modelling MSc. This course in unique in defence, providing expertise in a vital and fast changing area of technology.
If you are seeking a MOD-funded place, you will need to demonstrate in your application that there is a clear business need to undertake the course.
Formal assessment by coursework.
