The complex interrelationships among offensive, defensive, strategic, tactical, etc. weapon systems and the high cost of research and development, initial procurement, maintenance and operation of today's and the future's weapon complexes have forced decisionmakers to utilize the system analysis or cost-effectiveness approach. One educational device that is used to illustrate the principles of and the need for "Cost-Effectiveness" and "System » Analysis" is a simulated military planning game. This paper develops several game form analytical models that can be solved by linear programming techniques. The objective is to use an analytical tool to illustrate and emphasize the impact and significance of the principles of systems analysis on military decisionmaking.
