Abstract:

The Value Added Analysis VAA methodology is a decision support system that will assist decisionmakers in evaluating and prioritizing competing alternatives in the Program Objective Memorandum POM building process. The Value Added Analysis concept uses a family of models to measure an alternative explicit objective contribution to the program as an incremental or decremental change to the current program base. A hierarchical assessment framework is used to develop an alternatives scores. This assessment framework is used to evaluate changes against the current program base as the consequences of program alternatives are considered. Value Added Analysis results in measuring an alternatives relative value in the context of a larger value system. This relative value is either used directly by decisionmakers or is fed into a mathematical optimization model which simultaneously determines an alternative cost benefit and conducts a tradeoff between alternatives.
