The planning aid presented is a version of multi-attribute utility measurement MAUM that provides the commander with a simple and understandable means of organizing multiple inputs in selecting equipment. By working through the steps of the model the commander will be required to rely heavily on use of his judgement by doing so he will gain significant insight into the interdependencies of the inputs. The MAUM version selected is simple to use and easy to learn. Its format is also flexible and can be adapted to all world-wide scenarios. It provides a time-effective means for developing a force structure and when finished will provide the commander with a format that accommodates an understandable recommendation. Author
