To date, little progress has been made toward the establishment of scientific procedures by which a military manager can evaluate complex cybernetic systems such as management information systems. To provide a methodology yielding quantitative results which may assist a commander and his staff in this analysis, it is proposed thai: management information systems be evaluated as a whole by a technique defined as the semantic differential. Each characteristic of the system evaluated is compared to a standard or reference characteristic desired in a well designed system and a value is assigned based on the closeness of the comparison.
