A critical analysis of the METRI technique
White, Jack Allen
MetadataShow full item record
The "Military Essentiality Through Readiness Indices (METRI)" technique as presented in the Interim Technical Report to BuSandA, February 1965, was intended to describe the basic METJII model, the functional relationship between transition factors and the ship Readiness Index, as well as develop a technique for allowance list determination. However, many of the technical aspects of the report lacked clarity, some of the definitions were vague and doubly defined, and a sound theoretical justification was not adequately provided. The purpose of this thesis is to clarify and simplify certain technical aspects of METRI, provide theoretically sound models utilizing principles of reliability, and to derive the transition factors in a consistent and mathematically sound manner.
