Abstract : Operationally Ready (OR) rates for major items of equipment are primary indicators of logistic performance and effectiveness. These rates provide a measurement of the actual time equipment was operationally ready during any period, the time equipment was not ready (NOR) and the reasons for the Not Operationally Ready condition. Not Operationally Ready conditions are measured in terms of NORM (Not Operationally Ready, Maintenance), and NORS (Not Operationally Ready, Supply). This measurement differs from that described in LMI M2, Equipment Serviceability Rates, in that as noted above, measurements of readiness are related to actual readiness attained over a reporting period. Serviceability, as discussed under LMI MR2, relates to predicted readiness of equipment for a future period based upon an inspection at a point in time. Operational Readiness as measured in this LMI is considered to be the more meaningful measure of performance in attaining its objective of materiel readiness of the logistic system. (Author)
