A complex C2 system is an integrated combination of people, procedures, and equipment used to enhance the ability of the individual performing command and control. Actually, to control forces during an operation, a commander uses a cohesive combination of organizational structure, procedures and technical means. The nature of the load placed on an organization determines the appropriateness of a given organizational (Alberts & Hayes, 2003). In fact, each organization should have a structure that is well appropriated to the nature of the tasks to be performed as well as environmental conditions. In addition, developing command procedures is crucial in order to produce more effective decision making. Another basic component of command and control system is the technical means which are devices or processes that assist to boost the capabilities of a human being. However, circumstances may change while performing a given task or operation. Hence, a quick adaptation to new circumstances is required to achieve an effective command and control.

To begin with, the DMSC is a new model of analyzing dynamic decision making process presented Shattuck and Miller (2006). This model represents an extension of the Naturalistic Decision Making (NDM) theory. According to Shattuck and Miller (2006), the decision making process is affected to some extend by the data perception which is mainly the product of the technical means available in the system in addition to the human agents. These two elements (technological and human) reciprocally exert influence on each other and consequently impact the outcome of a C2
