Abstract : This research study examined the standard type unit development process for the Air Force. Current standard type unit development procedures were determined by a literature review. The literature review, with the interviews, provided information regarding the history of, purpose for, and possible alternatives for developing standard type units. A Delphi questionnaire was developed to determine how well the current process works, how standard type units worked for Desert Shield/Storm, and possible ways to improve the development process. This questionnaire was distributed to F-15 units, F-16 units, and major command personnel in Tactical Air Command (now Air Combat Command). All three levels in the development process were represented in the study. Analysis indicated that the current development process does not produce standard type units capable of meeting mission requirements. The process requires modification. Key changes required are formal training for all personnel within the development process, and developing one comprehensive publication detailing the duties and responsibilities at all levels. of the standard type unit development process.
