This plan provides for the systematic exercise of the E-DATE Model capabilities. It demonstrates each basic model function for each type set of data handled by the model. The Concepts Analysis Agency CAA developed the Effective E-DATE Model in response to a request from the Deputy Chief of Staff for Logistics for development of a methodology to assist Logistics Staff Officers in responding to questions from the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations about the adequacy of the equipment fills unit involved in force structure changes. An efficient and analytical assessment process was desired which would address units over the seven years of the planning cycle. The measure of the adequacy of the equipment fill was to be the unit readiness concept defined in AR 220-1, as it applies to equipment readiness personnel and other non-equipment issues are not included in the assessment. The model output was to be available to Logistics Staff Officers, who would form a judgement as the adequacy of the unit equipment fills both with respect to the capacity of individual units to carry out their missions and the capacity of groups of units to contribute to force readiness. The model consists of three in-line processors for readiness computation and one off-line processor for controlling the operation of the three in-line processors. The model has the capability to select and process five different types of units namely, activated units, converted units, special units, changed units, and unprogramed units.
