Abstract:

Finding overall system effectiveness from a multicriterion environment using SAM weapon systems as an example, is the purpose of this thesis. SAM weapon systems were rated by four groups of experienced individuals, and judged overall system effectiveness for each system was calculated using the Constant Sum Scaling Method. Multiple regression analysis was then used to establish a functional relationship between overall system effectiveness and weapon characteristics including missile price. It was concluded that there were no significant differences among the judged results in the four groups, nor between judged and functional overall system effectiveness. Author
