Promoting Alabama as the
recognized leader in the
development and application
of modeling and simulation

Modeling & Simulation Marketplace (Business Development) Committee - Mission Charter

Alabama is a huge market for Modeling & Simulation (M&S) products and services that employ thousands of workers across multiple M&S domains. Conference and other events create a “market” for vendors and users. The economics of M&S should reveal its cost effectiveness when implemented as a solution.

Ojectives of the M&S Marketplace Committee:

  • identify conferences, exhibitions, workshops, and seminars in Alabama and elsewhere that are of value to our Council members.
  • identify who are the buyers (customers) and sellers of M&S.
  • liaison with the Alabama Economic Development Agency.
  • track the next possible round of Defense BRAC and possible impacts to Alabama.
  • advertise the conferences and events on the AMSC website and social media.
  • provide M&S Marketplace news in a monthly e-newsletter.

Goals of the M&S Marketplace Committee:

  • gain an understanding of the M&S market size in Alabama in terms of how many organizations utilize M&S; how many employees and the revenue from M&S.
  • showcase the impact to the Alabama economy by the M&S market.
  • track any trends affecting the M&S market. (budgets, BRAC)
  • provide the M&S market a venue to showcase their products.
  • make AMSC the go-to place for M&S Marketplace news in Alabama and elsewhere as possible.

Ground Rules:

  • Alabama is the primary focus, but the focus can extend to national and international as needed.
  • Each AMSC committee will actually compliment and share information directly and indirectly with other committees. Thus, strengthening all areas.
  • Timeline is unlimited and it is considered to be a continuous activity.
  • The M&S Marketplace Committee will self-organize and appoint a committee chair and vice-chair.
  • Participation is voluntary.
  • He committee can add objectives and goals as needed.
  • Primary interactions will be through email and meetings as needed.
  • The committee will report to the AMSC Board on progress made.
  • The AMSC Board, General Administration, and Website Manager will assist the committee as needed.
  • Membership is open to any M&S professional with a passion to see the results of their work which results in a continuous product that is a valuable asset to fellow simulationists in Alabama.

We will not build Rome in a day, but we can start to identify M&S Marketplace focus areas and be in the know of what the latest marketplace news is.

If you wish to volunteer or have comments or questions, please contact info@almsc.org. There is no closure date for requests to join a committee. The invitation will remain open.
