This research develops a methodology which determines an index used in the assessment of risk in Operational Testing. The risk assessment problem examined is that of preference statements regarding competing systems. In order to evaluate the competing systems, a multivariate statistical analysis of the systems is undertaken. Through the analysis of the multivariate distributions of each system and the overlap of these distributions, the index of risk is determined. Thus the index of risk is a measure of similarity of the competing systems.
