The charter of MSUG is "To Increase Successful Use of Simulation as a Decision Support Tool". It shall be accomplished by:

  1. Providing MSUG members with a forum, across the company and industry boundaries, for the mutual exchange of technical, administrative, and management information pertaining the use of simulation technology;
  2. Broadening the knowledge of its members on simulation and its applications;
  3. Communicating with simulation software suppliers regarding their product, maintenance, and other technical requirements from end users so as to provide them ideas for improving their products;
  4. Cost issues both on selling the software and on performing services will be excluded from the group discussions.
