Abstract:

The report constitutes some initial independent thoughts on an approach to the measurement of short run readiness of Navy units. Readiness is assumed to be expressed in terms of values associated with having the unit in a given state when certain requirements are imposed upon it as the result of the specification of a set of missions. That is, readiness is associated with the ability of successfully complete a set of tasks rather than with the physical state of any material component or group of components of the system. The term short run is used to distinguish the time periods over which readiness is determined from those where the response ability of the system can change due to obsolescense and deterioration as well as because of changing resource levels and mission requirements.
