Abstract:

A single-pass computer model has been developed that utilizes reliability, availability and maintainability design parameters to predict the system effectiveness of a system. The resulting system effectiveness value is used to predict the quantity of systems that should be placed within a tactical unit to achieve a specified unit effectiveness requirement. The model predicts a most likely quantity that would be required and also performs a worst-case and best-case analysis to provide pessimistic and optimistic predictions.
