Abstract:

This research note reports on the increasing need within the Department of Defense to improve systems performance through better integration of men and women into military systems. This underlying theme of the Research Note is that once the level of operational performance is settled upon, trade- offs among available resources can and should be made. Formal methodologies are proposed which permit mixtures of training, equipment, and individual differences to be traded off to arrive at a prescribed level of systems performance. This approach is called isoperformance .
