Abstract:

This report describes the methods and analytical techniques relative to Air Force system designs under a system effectiveness requirement, with the objective of providing design criteria at the subsystem and equipment levels. Presented are the relevant background concepts and general application considerations necessary for an understanding and implementation of a system effectiveness evaluation. The techniques for the objective apportionment of a systems figures of merit to their constituent parameters and accountable factors are described and illustrated in detail, with primary emphasis on the developed Lagrange multiplier with priority list solution method. The technical role and perspective of system functional transfer equations, methods for their application and use in the evaluation and apportionment of system effectiveness are rendered and demonstrated in detail. A plan for the dynamic monitoring and status reporting of system effectiveness progress during all phases of system development, and to provide management and design visibility on critical and sensitive problem areas, is outlined.
