ABSTRACT
The article focuses on using the airfield simulation tool (AST) and airfield capacity-capability assessment. The AST traditionally has been used for fleet-level analysis of transportation network flows. It describes the application of an available, relatively easy-to-use tool to assist logistics planners in performing analyses of airfield capacity and capability in order to achieve validation of new or existing missions and predict the ability of the base to process varying levels of workload. It focuses on the capacity of Write-Patterson air base's freight operations, preliminary research was conducted on ways to increase the proficiency of air traffic controllers. It demonstrates the efficacy of the AST for assessing airfield capacity and capability. It identifies areas where underutilized capacity could he exploited to provide additional training and proficiency opportunities.
