The author presents the results of an extensive literature review and survey analysis conducted to identity, compare, and contrast various C4I evaluation techniques and existing C4I measures of effectiveness (MOEs). Evaluation methodologies examined include the Cost and Operational Effectiveness Analysis, the Modular Command and Control Evaluation System (MCES), the Mission Oriented Approach (MOA), the Headquarters Evaluation Analysis Tool, Evolutionary Upgrade Paths, and Functional Decomposition methods. Existing MOEs from past military C4I analyses and academia are identified, as well as potential methodologies for developing new MOEs, such as MCES and MOA. A new structural framework is developed using Marine Corps doctrine in order to categorize MOEs with potential applicability to Marine Corps C4I system analyses. The framework is used to compare and contrast identified MOEs, including performance rankings based on expert opinion. Conclusions discuss the utility of different evaluation techniques and estimated performance of identified MOEs. Additionally, suggestions for higher resolution sub-categories are presented.
