Abstract : This report describes a 2-day conference called to explore the methodology required to develop a behavioral model of system operational readiness (SOR). Participants discussed the behavioral variables that should be included in the model, the system level measures that should be included, the mechanisms that permit behavioral variables to affect system output and SOR, the kind of data needed to exercise a behavioral model of SOR, and the way personnel policies affect the behavioral variables. The major points made by participants have been extracted and form the body of this report, along with written response to the five topics above. It appears that the development of a behavioral SOR model is possible, although expensive and heavily dependent on the availability of operational (fleet data).
