In the operations analysis curriculum at the United States Naval Postgraduate School numerous reports were presented from 1952 to 1954 which exemplified some methods and techniques for comparing weapons, methods, strategies, etc., quantitatively using a measure of effectiveness. These reports seemed to place little emphasis on the relative amount of effort or assets available to implement a final decision. This paper is written to emphasize the necessity of considering not only the amount of effort available but also the manner and times at which increments of effort became available.
