Critical Factors and Operational Research in Tactical Fighter Avionic System Development,
AERITALIA S P A TURIN (ITALY) GRUPPO SISTEMI AVIONICI ED EQUIPAGGIAMENTI
This paper illustrates an operational analysis tool to assist in understanding complex system features. Application to the design and development of the avionic system of a tactical fighter is described with special regard to critical factors affecting the system development or part of it. It is pointed out that the described tool is not to be used to design or develop the system, which requires much more complex activities, but it is a possible useful way to summarize and present the results of the operations research in order to trim the project in the right direction. Additional effort toward system optimization, configuration definition and development trade-offs can be made by means of the marginal substitution rate factors. Application of the above tools and techniques has been and is currently being done for systems similar to the examples such as the development of the avionic system of AM-X aircraft.
