Title: Technical Guidance for Archiving and Configuration Management of Homeland Security Simulation Applications
Published: January 15, 2014
Abstract: This document provides general guidance that is designed to help the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Program Managers and other executives inside and outside of DHS who may have limited expertise in simulation to better understand the technologies used to maintain and support homeland security modeling and simulation (M&S) applications. Examples of topics (within the context of simulation) that are addressed in this report include: a) Archiving of simulation applications, associated software, and test data and b) Configuration management of simulations, models, associated software, and test data. The technical guidance contained in this report is based on published literature, information available on the Internet, technical expertise, and personal experience.
