Abstract : A design methodology for Command and Control organizations is introduced in which the data flow structure is determined first and then the decision-making organization design is obtained. The data flow structure design focuses on information processing schemata whereas the decision-making organization design focuses on the allocation of functions to the decisionmakers. Data flow structures are generated and are subsequently augmented and transformed into C2 organizations. The candidate organizational designs are evaluated on the basis of their Measure of Effectiveness; and the design with the highest MOE value is selected. An example is used to illustrate the methodology. Keywords: Accuracy timeliness; Workload; systems engineering; Naval antiair warfare. (Author)
