One of the main and difficult problems of systems analysis is that of generating the system's variants. The method of morphological analysis is widely used for the solution of this problem. This paper is concerned with the investigation of the problem of morphological space metrization. The paper includes questions on the theoretical justification of a metric in a morphological space, and contains analytical relations for the calculation of the number of points in neighborhoods of the morphological space. Questions on the determination of medians and antimedians are also discussed here. The above-mentioned results can be useful for decision-makers and systems analysts who apply the method of morphological analysis in practice. The author considers metricized morphological space as also of interest to mathematicians.
