Swedish term or phrase: åtgärdskapaciteten
Genom att samverka vid upprättandet av räddningsplaner och genom att öva hur man gemensamt skall uppträda på en skadeplats kommer åtgärdskapaciteten för de involverade organisationerna att öka.

I know the literal translation would be something like "measured capacity", but I am wondering if there is something that requires a bit more insight here. What do you think?

Pursuant to my previous suggestion using 'handled', it would be logical to suggest this slightly loose but hpopefully idiomatic translation.
