AURA (Army Unit Readiness/Sustainability Assessor) is a Monte Carlo discrete-event simulation model intended for analyzing the interrelationships among the resources associated with a set of combat units, and the capability of those units to generate combat missions in a dynamic, rapidly evolving wartime environment. This volume is the first of two being prepared as a User's Manual for AURA. It provides a succinct but complete discussion of the capabilities of the model and the processing logic involved in the twelve major subsets of tasks. Discussion of the input requirements, procedures, and formats are to be found in Vol. II; these detailed discussions provide the only complete explanations for some of the numerous control options available with AURA and must be considered mandatory reading for anyone planning to operate AURA.
