Abstract
Tyche is a Monte Carlo discrete-event simulation application tool developed by Defence Research and Development Canada's Centre for Operational Research and Analysis (DRDC CORA) to support the Canadian Armed Forces in conducting capability-based planning for force structure analysis. As part of a phased upgrade approach to enable the tool to handle medium-to-large-scale, multi-objective optimization problems, DRDC CORA established a requirement to transition the Tyche application to a fully-supported, modern programming language and perform significant upgrades. Tyche 3.2 is a natural extension to Tyche 3.1. In Tyche 3.1 flexibility was added to allow a user to select a time scale appropriate to the problem at hand, and the application was readied for high performance computing environments (HPC) through the implementation of fractional simulations. In Tyche 3.2, first-use defects of Tyche 3.1 were rectified to improve the software reliability, performance benchmarking was identified, and the documentation was given a refresh.
