Abstract
The Operational Readiness Program in the Y2K Project is determining the state of Canadian Forces systems in terms of potential failures caused by the date change on 1 January 2000. The project has 12 representative missions for the Canadian Forces and is determining the impact of non-compliance on these missions and the optimal combination of repairs, replacements and work-arounds to implement to prepare for year 2000 contingencies. The Operational Research Division was tasked by the Deputy Chief of Defence Staff to develop a reporting system to track the progress of the remediation work and report on the impact of these efforts in terms of mission performance. The author was asked to develop a logical, explainable and consistent roll-up methodology that was based on colour-coding systems, sub-tasks, and tasks. The colour-coding system developed in this paper was proposed as a simpler option to replace a numerical system originally developed for this tasking, reference 5.
