COST-EFFECTIVENESS: THE ECONOMIC EVALUATION OF ENGINEERED SYSTEMS

THE INTEREST GENERATED WITHIN THE LAST FEW YEARS IN SYSTEMS ENGINEERING HAS RESULTED IN A GROWING AWARENESS OF A NEED FOR MEASURES OF EFFECTIVENESS OF SYSTEMS IN RELATIONSHIP TO THEIR COSTS. THIS BOOK WAS PRODUCED FROM NOTES PREPARED FOR A ONE-WEEK SHORT COURSE OFFERED IN APRIL 1967 BY THE ENGINEERING AND PHYSICAL SCIENCES EXTENSION DIVISION OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, LOS ANGELES. THE FOLLOWING TOPICS ARE DISCUSSED IN THIS VOLUME: ANALYSIS OF THE SYSTEMS ENGINEERING PROCESS, THE ROLE OF PROBABILITY IN COST-EFFECTIVENESS, BASIC ELEMENTS OF DECISION THEORY AND VALUE THEORY, CONCEPTS OF SYSTEM RESOURCE REQUIREMENTS, A STANDARDIZED APPROACH TO COST-EFFECTIVENESS EVALUATIONS, COST-EFFECTIVENESS FALLACIES AND MISCONCEPTIONS, AND COST-EFFECTIVENESS EXAMPLE: A HYPOTHETICAL SUPERSONIC TRANSPORT, AND COST-EFFECTIVENESS - SOME CURRENT TRENDS IN METHODOLOGY.
