Operational readiness is one of the most important indexes of operational capability and the overall index for the effectiveness of the equipment support system of system (SoS). A scientific and reasonable assessment model is of great significance for optimizing the structure of the support SoS and improving the effectiveness of the support SoS. Aiming at the problem of inadequate consideration of the support factors in the existing assessment model, a new assessment model of the operational readiness rate that considers a variety of support factors is proposed. From the perspective of equipment support mission requirements, the equipment readiness assessment models for a single combat unit and multiple combat units are constructed. Finally, the accuracy of the proposed model is verified by an example analysis and comparison, and the influence of different support factors on the operational readiness rate is quantitatively analyzed.
