A hierachical example of the method of c–rating for combat readiness assessment technique
Author(s): Mankilik IM
Abstract: In this paper we present a follow up to an earlier method of c-rating models for combat readiness assessment in which we reported on a new development of immense importance to readiness managers and decision markers. The method is a multi-dimensional approach for resolving readiness problem via subresources in which the state and factor are the cardinal concepts with a concomitant relationship. We demonstrate the applicability of the method by using a hypothetical yet typical example within a naval environment. A step-by-step process is followed to determine unreadiness and consequently the readiness of the fleet as shown on the c-scale.
