The Evaluation of Military Vehicle Concepts 650046
This paper proposes the treatment of vehicle concept evaluation on the basis of a systems analysis approach. The author suggests that vehicle parameters be divided into predictable and statistical characteristics. These include transportability, aerial transportability, weight, dimensions, pay-load, range, highway and off-road performance in the former category and initial cost, producibility, reliability, maintainability, and effectiveness in the latter. Descriptions of each characteristic are presented.
