A quantitative analysis is given of the installation and subsequent operation of the USAF Standard Base Level Supply System. In 1965-1966, 110 bases were converted to the Standard System, which was intended to provide standardized computers UNIVAC 1050-II, programs, and external procedures for base supply operations throughout the Air Force. The data used in the study came from 103 bases, 69 belonging to ADC, ATC, SAC, and TAC. The analysis shows that conversion to the new system was easier than expected. The time required was related to the size of the operation and the date of conversion By the end of the program, conversion time averaged 2 weeks, 40 percent less than at the beginning. Learning appears to have progressed rapidly.
