Modeling and simulation capabilities continue to grow within the Department of Defense, including expansion into novel areas. This evolutionary process invariably exposes some capability shortfalls where the technologies, policies, and/or personnel re-sources are insufficient to meet all demands, creating “gaps” in the spaces addressed by M&S capabilities. Several successful pro-grams have established processes to understand these gaps and work towards their remediation.
