project developed a discrete event simulation of the
Constellation program Orion Ares I Ground Operations
project. This includes all
processing and flight and ground systems element
integration post "DD250", that is post delivery
of individual flight hardware elements to the Kennedy Space Center.
The Exploration Launch and Landing Simulation.
ELLA is a discrete
event simulation tool designed to provide
valuable but easy to use analysis capability for
what-if operations scenarios for the
Constellation program at KSC.
ELLA requires the following software components:
Simulation Discrete Event Simulation file.
The Rockwell Automation Arena
Simulation software to create the prior file.
The generic graphical user
interface, "Ariana" for Arena,
created by Productivity Apex Inc. (also available for
MS Excel files, useful for post-simulation-run processing of
Productivity Apex, Inc.
