Abstract
In 2007, the Canadian Operational Support Command requested the development of a tool set to assist with management of joint operational support personnel. The Operational Sustainability Model (OSM), a discrete event simulation tool for examining personnel tempo, is one component of this tool set. The aim of the OSM is to help assess the ability of the Canadian Forces (CF) to meet the personnel demands of operations over a planning horizon of up to five years, by providing projections of personnel shortages in both operations and the establishment, and personnel tempo patterns. Additionally, the OSM can be used to examine potential future impacts of changes in the CF establishment structure on the CF’s ability to sustain operations. The purpose of this report is to describe the data requirements, assumptions and logic of the OSM. Examples of the types of results that can be produced are shown, but no actual analysis of the CF’s ability to meet the personnel demands of current or future operations is presented.
