A model is developed for solving the optimization problem created when a manufacturer presents management with numerous proposed modifications which will improve the system effectiveness of an existing system. The optimization is constrained by the physical limitations of the system and by a limited budget. System effectiveness is defined and discussed in detail for an anti-submarine aircraft system with reliability considered the single most important factor. The model transforms the problem into an integer programming problem, and a numerical example is provided to demonstrate the versatility of this model.
