Abstract:

This analysis set out to gain a better understanding about the quantifiable characteristics of CF commitments. The initial goal was to identify the main themes and then expand the effort along interesting lines of analysis when it appeared useful. The report explains how the available information on CF commitments was compiled into a comprehensive spreadsheet for subsequent analysis. The first component of the analysis focussed on visualising the data along timelines and in stacked figures. The key themes identified were then quantified using basic statistics in a series of tables. The results provide a useful set of activation rates needed by Scenario Operational Capability Risk Assessment Model SOCRAM and other strategic capability planning efforts.
