A systems effectiveness model for an alternative structured complex system
Keim, Clarence Howard
MetadataShow full item record
A complex system envisioned can accomplish a given mission with the aid of any one of several alternative structures. Each of these alternative structures (subsystems) , although capable of mission accomplishment, exhibits different levels of performance due to its component inventory. The structures are ordered in preference accordingly. Operation on less-preferred structures is a function of component/structure failure histories in prior structures. Failures are classified by three levels of severity. A system effectiveness model is developed to provide a measure of effectiveness for the overall complex system which encompasses all possible alternative structures.
