Abstract:

The program concerned problems in assessing the status, potentials, and weaknesses of operational manned systems and of dealing analytically with that variance in system behavior attributable to its human members. As the core problem is the behavior of the responsible system element, Command and Control C and C, the specific question addressed was, How can the effectiveness and performance of operational C and C be better measured, analyzed, and evaluated. These problems were resolved through the development of methods and a methodological framework for dealing with C and C as an integral part of systems. The framework consists of analysis process stages conceived to take place prior to quantitative data analysis. The foundational concepts of the methodology include definitions of C and C, taxonomization, the Systems Taxonomy Model, systems description discussions, ideas for the use of operator models, and analytic decision-making concepts.
