—This paper introduces a system design methodology for controlling engagement simulations and evaluating the results of simulations. An engagement simulation system covers sophisticated operations of combat entities in a synthetic battlefield. Therefore, the system represents behaviors of combat entities to simulate a combat scenario and results of the simulation. However, there are factors which affect simulation execution, such as detection probability, moving speed, and moving path, and the result of a simulation can be distorted by unreliable values of those factors. For the useful simulation system of engagement, the system should be controllable by users for modifying inadequate values of important factors, and the results of simulations should be evaluated based on the change of effective factors. In this study, we define three types of effective factors and explain how to control and evaluate the defined factors.
