The centrality of control structures in combat system engineering means that architectures can be derived via existing methods for control of large-scale and complex systems. This report indicates how methods used by system engineers in manufacturing, transport, chemical processing, steel, and distribution systems for electrical power, water, telecommunications, and resources can be applied to the problems of combat system engineering. Establishing a theoretical foundation of this type is important because it allows more effective communication and exchange of ideas with experts in both defense and industrial control applications. The underlying purpose is not to invent new theories but to mobilize available scientific and empirical knowledge for application to Navy problems.
