The report describes the first phase of a 3-year research effort to develop a method for measuring the effectiveness of military intelligence MI. Although the Army uses a number of evaluation methods, there are no methods appropriate for assessing the effectiveness of specific MI tasks and processes. To develop appropriate methods, researchers collected data through interviews and multi-attribute utility assessment and developed profiles of effective MI outputs. The profiles form the basis for a measurement instrument. In the next phase of research, a fault diagnosis methodology will be developed to trace failures in the output to causes in the MI process. In the final phase, the methodologies will be validated. A supplemental report Working Paper HUA 88-03 describes the project rationale and additional results of interest to the military community.
