Paper Abstract

Analytical organizations have long recognized the desirability of hierarchical families of models. Although good model hierarchies have existed from time to time, practice has often fallen short of the ideal. Further, given changes in the nature of warfare, as well as the advent of new theories and technologies, it is time to rethink the entire issue of model families, to set fresh ambitions, and to go about constructing good mutually informed families of both models and analytically structured human war games. The paper offers initial suggestions about how to do so. It is intended, however, as a starting point for a fresh look by the community-i.e., as a stimulus to a more extended debate.
