Abstract
This paper examines approaches to options analysis in a defence setting. These include optimization techniques for problems with many options, a modi¯cation of Pugh's Method for multi-criteria decision analysis, and median rank voting. The idea is to present techniques that are not well known to the military operational research community. In addition, I discuss the special organizational characteristics of defence decisions.
