Abstract
Underway Replenishment (UNREP) is an important operation for sustained naval operations. When evaluating Underway Replenishment operations, it is necessary to consider the main factors that reduce operability. The main sources of degradation identified in this report are: ship-to-ship interaction, equipment limits, and human factors. This report examines these sources and provides a method for generating criteria sets for operability evaluations. The example criteria sets developed represent the three different aspects of UNREP and use the presented threshold values. Though comprehensive analysis is suggested, various assumptions are made to allow analysis of cases where the details of the ship configuration are unknown. The effects of these assumptions are explained.
