Abstract:

In a continuing effort to improve military personnel records maintenance and personnel management functions, the Army, in March 1973, organized a study group RAM2 Task Force to design and test the feasibility of converting military personnel records to microform images. During Phase I of the study, micromedia techniques and equipment were surveyed and evaluated and a prototype design selected employing a microfiche records concept i.e., 98 micro-images on a 4 in. x 6 in. plastic base. Phase II of the study Sep 73-Jan 74 included operation of a microfiche production facility, actual conversion to microfiche of 2603 OMPF and 194 CBIF of active duty officers, warrant officers and enlisted personnel files, and the subsequent testing of these microfiche records in an operational military personnel management environment. This interim report describes the operations of the microfiche facility, the conduct of the pilot test, and the findings of the test.
