The concept of a weapon system’s Residual Value for inclusion to calculating cost-effectiveness ratios, and
Introduction of the influence of the Probability of War upon how the cost of war is counted toward cost-effectiveness study results. The conclusion of this paper is that cost-effectiveness modelling should consider both the most probable war scenario which will occur if deterrence fails as well as a sustained peacetime. It is hoped that this paper will invite beneficial debate surrounding the alternatives for linking cost and effectiveness indices.
