dc.description.abstractAn explicit theory for "measures of effectiveness" (MOEs as they are commonly referred to) does not exist. As a result several definitions for MOEs have been advanced, that while similar, do not provide the needed insight into ayatem performace evaluation. Original studies performed by the Military Operations Research Society's (MORS) Command and Control workshop in the mid-1980s laid a foundation for a more theoretical approach that was well received withing the MORS community. However, little has been done in the last decade to further this work. Most papers in the latter part of the 1990s make no reference to the workshop reports and other published papers that resulted from the workshop. This paper will present a review of the original work performed by MORS as well as relevant materials that has been published in the intervening years. It will extend the original body of work using the systems-of-systems perspective originally developed by Russell Ackoff. A concise systems based definition of MOEs will be derived using this framework. The paper will also present the framework for a consistent mathematical theory for MOEs.en_US
