Abstract
Garrison commanders at Army installations have the authority to choose in which programs to invest. Installation Management Command (IMCOM)-Pacific wants to inform these funding decisions through a structured assessment process that incorporates relevant metrics. While IMCOM-Pacific has collected some data metrics, it is not clearly linked to the Army Community Service (ACS) office’s primary objective of “increasing soldier readiness.” This capstone project treats the IMCOM-Pacific ACS office as a system and utilizes a systems engineering approach to decompose the system’s functions and objectives to assess the value of each program under the ACS office. The resulting framework provides the ACS office a reusable, defendable model that traces measurable attributes to the overarching objective. This quantitative value model assists the ACS office in ranking programs with regard to the overarching objective and developing an appropriate investment strategy. The project team delivered a spreadsheet with step-by-step instructions for the construction of a notional value model, which is applicable to other IMCOM garrisons. This capstone may also support future work for an optimization model that maximizes the value of an investment strategy.
