Summary

A Rand evaluation of activity and products of gaming, model-building, and simulation carried out under the auspices of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency aimed not only to assess the usefulness of gaming in military-political policymaking, but also to contribute to the definition of common standards and the refinement of objectives for the entire gaming profession. As a result of the survey, the purposes, production, operation, use, and costs of 132 models, simulations, and games are reported. Recommendations are presented indicating several ways in which increasing professionalism can benefit both gamers and the policymakers they serve. (Author/RH)
