Abstract
This applied research project is aimed at developing Modelling and Simulation capabilities for addressing Human Systems Integration issues in the Canadian Department of National Defence capital acquisition process. It is a three phase project with this report covering the first phase. The goal of the first phase was to identify a capital acquisition project that would best serve as a basis for the development of a modelling or simulation tool and a case study for the new capability. Structured interviews were held with three major Royal Canadian Navy projects and with other headquarters staff. The results of the interviews were evaluated as to the appropriateness of the project to support the follow-on phases of the research and a decision was made as to which project and modelling tools were to be used for phases two and three.
