Abstract : 'How can we show that command and control system acquisitions will contribute to increased force effectiveness?' 'The most difficult portion of the Strategic Defense Initiative is battle management.' 'How do we organize command and control for joint operations?' 'How can we show that command and control system acquisitions will contribute to increased force effectiveness?' These are the types of problems that frequently perplex Department of Defense military and civilian leaders, analysts, and program managers. Questions of this type require the establishment of an evaluation structure firmly based upon Measures of Effectiveness (MOEs). Such measures must be tailored to the analytical application and provide credible results to decisionmakers. It is toward this goal that a Military Operations Research Society (MORS) Workshop about which this document reports was conducted at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, in January 1985. The product of the Workshop was a draft of this report.
