Description of the Base Operations-Maintenance Simulator (BOMS), a computer program which simulates the essential characteristics of an Air Force base. In its present form it represents a SAC B-52/KC-135 organization, but can with slight modifications represent most other single-base operations. The Memorandum describes in general terms the three separate computer programs making up BOMS: (1) the data generator combines a flying schedule with random failures, generated by a Monte Carlo process, and with resources required for repair; (2) the main program simulates in great detail the minute-by-minute activities of the base; and (3) the analysis program summarizes the output of the main program and prints the reports. An appendix provides technical details of each of these programs.
