Abstract : The objective of Task Group I was To review present procedures being used to establish system effectiveness requirements and recommended a method for arriving at requirements that are mission responsive. Applicable documents were examined that might be used to establish effectiveness requirements. Detailed examination of the Specific Operational Requirement (SOR) and the Companion Directorate Office Instruction (DOI) 11-7 resulted in the preparation of a proposed Air Force Manual (Appendix I). This document provides checklists, guidelines, and procedures for SOR preparation that include the significant elements of system effectiveness. A proposed Air Force Regulation (Appendix II) was developed to formalize a program of effectiveness evaluation and prediction for the system life cycle. Policy, concepts, and major command responsibilities are developed. Additional conclusions and recommendations are submitted relative to effectiveness requirements that constitute necessary steps to development of an Air Force wide system effectiveness management program.
