This paper analyzes the Detailed Policy Assessment Tool (DPAT) as an exaniple of a practical real-world aviation siniiilutiori thut uses optimistic sinzulation technology. We present a review of analyses thut have used DPAT results to support their conclusions, and discuss the design and performance of the systeni in the context of parallel simulntion. The thrust of this paper is to explain how DPAT avoids some of the problems associated with optimistic simulation, while exploiting its
more » ... . A key conclusion is that parallel simulation technology, particularl~~ optimistic synchronization, needs to he built into the product from its conceptual design through iniplementation, as opposed to adding it afterwards.
