The article deals with application of Discrete Event Simulation in professional training which focuses on analysis, planning, management and decision making support during military operations characterized by high complexity, dynamics, large number of influencing factors and utilization of advanced technologies. One of the key areas of the planning process and subsequent implementation of the logistical support to deployed units, especially during the first phase of the operation, is the Reception, Staging and Onward Movement (RSOM) process. Logistics planners seek a compromise option, i.e. optimum between time available, cost and quality of implementation when planning and subsequently implementing optimal solutions. The paper deals with the possibility of using simulation in the field of training and logistics planning by implementing a specific technology, possible future aspects, operating conditions and tactical entities – such as Autonomous Systems.
