As facilities throughout the Navy's infrastructure system degrade and require replacement, and as new missions require additional facilities, it is crucial that each facility approved will in turn improve an activity's ability to perform its mission. The central objective of this study was developing a method of predicting how new projects affect both an activity's and its major claimant's ability to succeed in their missions and to incorporate this prediction into the approval process. Research was conducted to determine how Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) currently approves construction projects and how additional information about an activity's facility condition, available in existing databases, could assist the approval system. The major development was an infrastructure readiness model that assesses the condition of each mission essential facility. From this condition assessment, the model attempts to predict how new construction projects or renovations at each activity will improve an activity's and its major claimant's current facility condition. Projects are then ranked in order of infrastructure readiness improvement. By using this model in conjunction with the current approval system, NAVFAC can determine whether activities and major claimants are requesting projects that improve both their infrastructure condition and their ability to complete their assigned missions.
