Abstract : Four techniques are described to improve methods for exercising and evaluating command and control systems: (1) exercise flow diagram (generalizes and extends the techniques of flow charting for use in exercising); (2) resource assignment model (uses techniques of mathematical logic to describe the information processing in the command and control system); (3) expected utility model (uses techniques drawn from decision theory to describe decision making in a command and control system; and (4) finite automaton model (uses techniques from the theory of finite automata to describe the relationships between a command and control system and the system exercising it).
