Abstract : The main goal of this research is to start bridging the gap between mathematical theories of command and control and empirical studies. More specifically, the goal is to develop theories on the one hand and to model experimental paradigms on the other, so that realistic problems in command and control (2) can be studied prior to the design of experiments and the collection of relevant data. During this six-month period (March to September 1987) the research effort focused on the integration of the computational and graphical tools to be used in the design of organizations, i.e., the development of CAESAR (Computer-Aided Evaluation of System Architectures) and on the first experiment involving human subjects. (Included in this report is a reprint: Experimental Investigation of the Bounded Rationality Constraint).
