Discussion

Though Blanchard and Fabrycky (2011) do not define "mission analysis", their discussion of "mission definition" is relevant to mission analysis. Effectively, mission analysis is a set of activities designed to help answer the questions (Blanchard and Fabryky 2011):

  • What is the system to accomplish? and
  • How will the system accomplish its objectives?
