Abstract:

This research was directed at determining if the Dayton Defense Contract Administration Service District DCASD Management Information System MIS could be of value to the Quality Assurance QA manager in the allocation of manpower resources. Data representing 131 contractors under the cognizance of the Dayton DCASD during the period July through December 1975 were collected and analyzed. One data element reported in the MIS, corrective action hours, was expected to be related to product quality. The research was aimed at determining what QA activities and other MIS variables were predictors for the number of hours expended in corrective action. Multiple regression analysis was used both to describe the existing relationships between corrective action hours as a dependent variable and the independent variables in the MIS, and to develop a model useful in predicting corrective action hours.
