System engineers use qualitative and quantitative measurements in their work. The use of quantitative measurements is growing; however, the mathematical rigor behind these measurements is rarely done or presented in the literature. Without the mathematical rigor misleading results can occur. System readiness level (SRL) has been introduced as a quantitative measurement to aid in the system engineers and program managers decision-making. The SRL was first developed by Sauser et al [2006] and is continuing to be developed and refined, by Sauser and others. The SRL is defined as a function of technology readiness level (TRL) and integration readiness level (IRL), both of which are ordinal ranking numbers. This presentation will discuss five mathematical properties that if adhered to would increase the mathematic rigor behind the SRL.
