Abstract:

A multiphased study was conducted to lead to the development of methods for determining the components and measuring the effects of advances in technology on human resources in Air Force weapon systems. The first phase of the study was reported in AD-A000 051. The second phase involved the development of Design Option Decision Trees DODT for two areas of Air Force systems technology Digital Avionics Information System DAIS and Remotely Piloted Vehicle Systems RPV. The third phase called for the development of unique methods or synthesis of existing techniques to result in a new method for measuring the effects of technology on Air Force human resources. A method integrating the DODT with a modification of the method of summated ratings was developed to arrive at a quantification of human resource effects of technological innovations. This procedure was applied AD-A014 335 to the DODT to provide the source data for the evaluation of the developed method. The DODTs for DAIS are presented in AD-A014 333.
