Resource allocation management is one of the effective factors in the performance of WiMAX base station. Various goals could be achieved when the resource allocation scheme exploits in the right direction. However, resource allocation schemes lack a uniform assessment metrics. Where, most of the researches trying to show author’s perspective in the results to show design pros, whilst the overall performance in resource allocation perspective is mostly missing. This paper presents the coordination between goals and design parameters that must be considered in the design phase to exploit the available features of the PHY and MAC layers and avoid the limitations. Moreover, this paper proposes a new method of primary assessment for resource allocation algorithms to ease conducting a fair comparison between the relevant algorithms. The assessment methodology based on a set of evaluation questions. The obtained results showed that the new assessment method distinguishes the overall performance to provide fair comparison.
