This thesis critically reviews twenty-two articles from the Soviet Naval Digest, "Morskoy Sbornik", dealing with a wide spectrum of measures of effectiveness such as individual time efficiency, ASW search effectiveness, command decision efficiency, effectiveness of ASW training, measures of force control, and others. These Soviet measures of effectiveness are categorized by level of combat action. Although there is some question about the specific Soviet meaning of the translations, this thesis uses the translation's rendering of the basic units for Soviet Naval organization; individual, subunit (podrazdeleniye), unit (chast'), and force (soyedineniye). the levels of combat action above force (generally agreed to be named front (front)), and TVD (Teatr Voyennykh), are not included in this study. The articles illustrate the Soviet tendency to organize their operations research along the same lines as the units of naval organization and indicate that the most basic measure of naval ship utility is combat effectiveness.
