Abstract : A theoretical Unit Operational Readiness Index model is developed after presenting a discussion concerning the implications of military force readiness evaluation. The theoretical model is designed around subject measurement of defined military goals. The quantification of defined goals in the manner proposed suggests the possible use of factor analysis techniques which are discussed. Although the model has not been empirically tested, it endeavors to provide a conceptual visualization of unit operational readiness evaluation and argues for the benefits to be derived from comprehensive schemes of this general type.
