The Office of the Chief of Naval Operations OPNAV has shown considerable interest in the need for measurement of material readiness of the fleet or any of its segments. OPNAV presented the problem of measuring material readiness-for-war of ships comprising the fleet. Similar objectives regarding material readiness account for the merging of research interests by the U. S. Navy Board of Inspection and Survey INSURV and the Project. The interest, expressed by INSURV, in establishing a uniform, analytical inspection methodology which permits the aggregation of inspection ratings pertaining to the material readinessfor- war provided the Project with the opportunity to apply its interests in the area of military worth utility measures and in methodology for determining an index to reflect material readiness. This paper presents the initial results of this merging of interests by INSURV and the Project. Author
