Abstract:

We believe that Readiness Based Sparing RBS is the superior method of sparing, far more efficient, cost-effective, and comprehensive than its predecessors, and that it should be utilized across the U.S. Department of Defense. Unfortunately, Department of Defense and Air Force policy is currently rather ambiguous concerning its use, and we plan to make a case to those individuals involved in policy-making to update the wording of such policy to more plainly mandate the use of RBS methods. In the interest of more thoroughly investigating this belief and, if it is confirmed, building a body of supporting evidence, we performed a measure of scholarly research on the topic, which we shall proceed to summarize in this paper.
