Use Readiness Management

The Readiness Management solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you understand the operational capacity of a force, monitor the status of units, and communicate capabilities and disruptions to commanders and administrative staffs.

In this topic, you’ll learn how to use the solution by assuming the role of a user and performing the workflows below.

Monitor force readiness

Some organizations may find it more efficient to have an individual, such as someone from the armory, check in their unit member using the Personnel Readiness Batch Report survey. If a unit decides to use the batch survey, follow the same general steps below with the Personnel Readiness Batch Report survey and the Readiness Dashboard.

You will start by assuming the role of a military unit member. You are asked to use the Personnel Readiness Report survey to share your availability status each morning.

Monitor personnel readiness

Now you will assume the role of the Readiness NCO in the same unit. You are asked to monitor the readiness of your unit and are looking to see if your unit is available to be assigned to a mission. You will view the overall readiness of your workforce.

Note:

The steps below are the same if you are an administrative NCO and will be using the Admin Dashboard to monitor the readiness of your team. The Admin Dashboard will contain personal information about the individual unit members.

  1. In a browser, go to the Readiness Dashboard application.

    The Readiness Dashboard opens with an overview of the overall readiness of the brigade and each battalion within the brigade.

  2. The overview displays key metrics. This information gives leadership a quick overview of the number of unit members available. Statistics related to the overall availability of your unit are also shown.
  3. In the filter at the top of the dashboard, the Last 24 Hrs tab is automatically selected to view a list of submissions within the last 24 hours. The Last 48 Hrs and Last 72 Hrs options can also be selected.
  4. Activate the Date Range filter by first selecting All in the Time frame filter and then providing a Start and End date. Review the list of personnel and their locations in the map.
  5. Click each of the battalion tabs to see the availability for each company in that battalion.
