This capstone report provides a practical example of how to assess the operational resiliency of an Army company team. In this research, operational resiliency is the ability of a company team to preserve its warfighting capability when operating in different operational scenarios comprised of distinct mission, enemy, and terrain requirements. This study evaluates three alternative configurations for their performance in three distinct scenarios (Mountain Attack, Urban Clear, and Desert Ambush) based on three measures of effectiveness (MOEs): force exchange ratio (FER), indirect-fire kill ratio (IDK), and intelligence time to detect 50% of enemy forces (INTEL). The systems engineering approach utilizes Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) techniques to produce nine agent-based simulation meta-models. The study performs a value-focused, multi-objective decision analysis of the three alternative configurations by developing MOE-specific value functions and scenario-specific swing-weight matrices. The results are compiled into an Operational Resiliency Decision Block that provides decision makers with a visual display tool to further analyze and assess performance. To ensure robustness of the results, the research analyzes the nine scenario-MOE weighted values for sensitivity.
