Abstract : This report sets forth improved methods and procedures for Navy planners to make decisions in development, design, and implementation of improvements to tactical command and control systems. This volume reports on the first year's study to analyze planning tools for system design and evaluation, and interprets their use in planning tactical command and control systems. The report discusses in detail planning for systems management and the procedures to be followed in system planning. It discusses the role of cost effectiveness and how effectiveness can be measured. Methodology for system planners is treated, covering the role of simulation in system design, development, checkout, and test and evaluation. Simulation languages, mathematical modelling and queuing models are discussed. A new and improved method of determining figures of merit for digital computers is given.
