According to the document:
In a recent lecture period, Dr. Welmers discussed the methods employed in an operational analysis. These analysis techniques are particularly valuable when conducting a study program to define a system possessing optimum characteristics for accomplishing a certain job, since the factors used in the analysis can be applied uniformly to each of several desirable systems in an expeditious and economic manner to determine the relative merits of each system.
Today I would like to consider this application of operational analysis; a study program designed to define an optimum weapon system. As a specific example I will take a study program recently completed by Bell Aircraft.
This report was written by my Grandfather, R.E. Greenewald. I had searched for records that contained by Grandfather’s name for many years, and this was the first I found. I gave it as a gift to my father one year for Christmas.
