Abstract:

This report describes the first phase of a project designed to aid Army Facilities Engineers in improving equipment management. A rational basis for establishing equipment utilization standards was developed based on economic analyses of owning and operating costs. Mathematical models and automated procedures for their application are presented to compute minimum and objective utilization standards for equipment categories. Sample results are provided and the sensitivity of the model parameters is evaluated. Recommendations for implementing the utilization standards are also given. Results can be used in an equipment management program to establish uniform criteria for justifying equipment ownership and for gauging optimal equipment utilization. Author
