Abstract : Since FY83 work has been conducted to develop a methodology for the description and analysis of complex Command, Control, and Communications (C3) systems. The methodology will explicitly consider the human role in such systems, as well as organizational and equipment constraints. The methodology developed under this effort will be a set of interrelated techniques, thus the title Integrated Analysis Techniques (IAT) has been chosen. This report outlines work to date, including the identification of requirements for IAT, development of an IAT conceptual framework, and preliminary validation of IAT concepts. Planned work for FY85, including more extensive validation, is also described. IAT is being developed to provide quantitative information about C3 human/system performance. This information can then be used to guide the analysis and design of new systems as well as the improvement or reconfiguration of existing ones.
