MetadataShow full item record
The composition of an artillery system and its mission in a non-nuclear environment is discussed. Four scenarios are defined in which the artillery system must perform its mission, and the tasks are detailed. A concept for a measure of effectiveness (MOE) for artillery is developed and a methodology is presented. The effects of the scenarios on the MOE are analyzed and the constraints are discussed. A mobility concept is developed and a definition is presented. Costing concepts and techniques are presented with notation developed for computer application to the artillery system costing problem. Some cost estimating relationships (CER's) are suggested. A cost-effectiveness analysis is made employing the developed MOE and costing procedure. Some decision criteria are stated and discussed.
Approved for public release, distribution is unlimited.
