Abstract:

The research efforts proved the feasibility of structuring an analytical model of an entire ship and the ability to calculate the military capability or readiness of a ship to carry out its missions with associated costs for specific operating policies or desired performance levels. Initial research was directed toward the supply problem and, in particular, the evaluation of on-board inventories in terms of military worth to the ships performance. However, the study pointed up other possible areas of application for the METRI technique, including evaluation of alternative designs, evaluation of maintenance policies, allocation and utilization of personnel, operational readiness reporting, and fiscal management. Some conceptual development has been accomplished on threat models, models for combinations of ships HUK forces, fleets availability models, cost effectiveness models and contract management models.
