A force structure design model.
Fletcher, Charles V.
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis describes a systematic force structure design methodology that uses force effectiveness, risk, and cost to design and compare force structures. The requirements for military force are determined by predicting the future military situation in terms of conflict probabilities. These requirements for military force are used to design a balanced force structure. The balance of the force structure is measured by force effectiveness attributes. The thesis uses relaxed mixed integer programming to optimally fill the force requirements by providing a balanced force structure with currently available forces.
