Abstract:

A general measure of component efficiency was investigated and applied to several types of information system components. Utilizing this measure of component efficiency, a model based on linear algebra was developed for a total information system. This model includes a generalized measure for total system efficiency. The application of the model was illustrated on a set of typical information storage, file organization, and equipment design problems. A calculus of operations, based on the measure of total system efficiency, was developed with broad application at all levels of system complexity. Author
