A complex system envisioned can accomplish a given mission with the aid of any one of several alternative structures. Each of these alternative structures subsystems, although capable of mission accomplishment, exhibit different levels of performance due to its component inventory. The structures are ordered in preference accordingly. Operation on less-preferred structures is a function of componentstructure failure histories in prior structures. Failures are classified by three levels of severity. A system effectiveness model is developed to provide a measure of effectiveness for the overall complex system which encompasses all possible alternative structures. Author
