Abstract:

The costs of maintaining military electronics systems have increased sharply in recent years. Two major sources of this increase can be identified. First, electronics systems have become much more numerous and complex, and second, personnel costs have risen sharply--especially the cost of first-term enlisted personnel. The report looks at methods of reducing these costs. Recommendations are made in three weapon systems maintenance manning, job performance aids, and the personnel and training system. The study distinguishes between short-term experiments or demonstrations that could be completed in six months to one year and longer-term projects.
