Abstract
The report summarises a methodology for selecting equipment to accomplish a set of mission elements according to prescribed task standards. The main idea is to model the problem as a generalisation of the class "Minimum Cover Problem", which is solvable by standard techniques of integer linear programming. The methodology uses defined configuration of equipment to address the mission elements. The solution it provides is the lowest cost set of equipment that satisfies all of the requirements for the mission elements. An example problem is discussed, that of selecting unit level STANO equipment. While the discussion is mainly in terms of equipment selection, the methodology can be applied to other classes of selection problems.
