Abstract : Three use factors for evaluating equipment are developed. F(1) evaluates the equipment compared to other equipment for six types of jobs. F(2) evaluates the equipment compared to other equipment for all types of jobs. F(3) evaluates the equipment in terms of the type of job where it is used most of the time. These use factors are useful when considering trade-off values of equipment and areas of greatest pay-off for development or replacement with new and better equipment. They also provide quantitative weighting factors for comparing costs, weights, and importance of repair parts. A continued study is recommended based on the F(2) and F(3) values. (Author)
