Abstract : This thesis models the interaction of nonlinear relationships based upon gathered expert judgments. The model developed reproduces a portion of the military expert's mission assignment decision-making process. Specifically, this thesis illustrates a method of combining the influences of experience, logistics, preparation time, continuous operations, mission, enemy, terrain type, visibility, engagement ranges and trafficability with varying brigade task organizations in order to identify the most mission ready brigade based upon expert military judgment for use within a theater level simulation. The model produced by this study uses the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) to obtain expert military judgments through relative scale pairwise comparison techniques and to recreate the results of those judgments. To fully implement the model, all situations require additional expert judgments and the model requires validation.
