Abstract:

An approach is developed to evaluate operational effectiveness and military utility for operational test and evaluation. The technique is applicable to many areas where the systems engineering approach involves both quantitative and subjective elements. Operational test organizational interactions are given in Section IV. A model is developed in Section V. Appendix B contains a technique to determine the operational effectiveness and military utility. Appendix C outlines the Delphi technique and Appendix D the application of utility theory to the problem of quantifying subjective information.
