Abstract
The Army Sustainability Exercise (ASX) was conducted from 2-6 April 2001 in Montebello, Quebec. The aim of the ASX was to produce a blueprint for a sustainable (costs and activity levels) Army by 2004. A cost-benefit analysis was conducted using a software package called EQUITY (TRADEMARK) to assess the value of Army units against several predetermined criteria. The EQUITY outputs were force structure options for the Reqular and Reserve Forces that maximised their value based on the participants' valuations. ASX syndicates then applied the operator knowledge and expertise using these EQUITY "solutions" as starting points to generate proposals for a sustainable operational assets generated by the concurrent activation of the Force Planning Scenarios was assessed using the Scenario Operational Capability Risk Assessment Model (SOCRAM). This report documents the process employed for the ASX, the dta generated to support the analysis and the results obtained from the Exercise.
