The highest level of Unit Mission Capability is the ultimate goal of any unit commander. Members of the user community, especially unit commanders, must be aware of the factors that influence their war fighting capability. Understanding these factors and their relationships, coupled with the implementation of specific strategies, can facilitate maximizing Unit Mission Capability. This is the primary focus of this project. This report will provide aviation unit commanders and user representatives with a clear explanation and demonstration of the variables that influence a commanderb2ss ability to improve Unit Mission Capability. The tool demonstrated in this report is the Availability, Proficiency, Cost, and Operational Tempo (OPTEMPO) model for assessing and maximizing Unit Mission Capability. The user community must understand how competing funding requirements influences their ability to train and maintain a strong fighting force. Current DOD funding levels will decline in the near future. It will become more and more difficult to achieve the desired state of Unit Mission Capability. Users must implement strategic cost saving initiatives to preserve our war fighting capability. .
