Abstract:

The man-machine concept is frequently given insufficient emphasis during the development phase of the weapons acquisition process. This situation may be improved through training the Systems Program Office SPO Managers in man-machine concepts in the USAF, the personnel subsystem. Prior to developing a training program, the background of present SPO directors and managers must be known. The report determines this background information through analysis of the computerized personnel records of SPO Managers assigned to the Aeronautical Systems Division at Wright-Patterson AFB. The report concludes that a training program is warranted, on the condition that the entire personnel subsystem element in the SPOs is re-emphasized by the Air Staff. Author
