Abstract:

This document provides a generic, efficient and cost-effective method of comparing system instantiations. It gives a unique view of a complex system by considering how well the system supports the overarching aim. The method proposed was developed from a requirement to undertake evaluations of complex military systems, in particular those associated with command and control. To illustrate the generic nature of the method, it is introduced using three very different systems. A military headquarters is then used as a more comprehensive example of how the method can be applied.
