Abstract : This effort was performed to define a common baseline for analysis and planning of CALS initiatives across the military services, leading to the future development of the DoD Architecture Guidelines. This study addresses the management of technical information in the Air Force. It describes how technical information is created, managed and used as related to Product Definition (PD) and Logistics Support (LS). It identifies a means of migration from the current environment to a highly automated environment through the application of information technologies. This study provides the background information necessary for subsequent analytical efforts in the development of the DoD architecture Guidelines
