Abstract : Organizational Maintenance Activities (OMAs) within the Naval Aviation Maintenance organization do not have an adequate information system (IS). This seriously degrades their ability to efficiently and effectively manage their aircraft, equipment, and personnel. Information systems to support both Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) and the operational chain of command include Naval Aviation Depot Information System (NADIS), Naval Air Logistics Data Analysis (NALDA), and Naval Aviation Logistics Command Management Information System(NALCOMIS). The portion of NALCOMIS intended to support OMAs is not scheduled to be fully implemented until 1999. Decisions made at OMAs have an immediate impact on force readiness and mission capability. Moreover, the largest unfulfilled need for information systems in naval aviation community is at the OMAs. This thesis examines the history of Information system in Aviation Maintenance, analyzes why OMAs lack adequate information systems, and offers a solution within the current technological capabilities of the aviation maintenance community. The potential improvement in operational readiness, avoidance of increased maintenance and personnel costs, improved decision making, and accuracy of information made available to all levels of the Navy chain of command makes implementing an Organizational Activity Strategic Information System (OASIS) imperative.
