Abstract:

There is some doubt about whether or not Air Force Civil Engineering personnel, who are responsible for the planning, construction, operation, and maintenance of all Air Force facilities, have the proper background information to cope with the current energy crisis. This thesis analyzes the results of a survey of over 500 Civil Engineering officers and equivalent civilians on the subject of energy information. The analysis shows that, in spite of the recent interest in energy, very few managers feel that they have enough background information to make educated decisions about energy problems in their functional areas. Seventy-seven percent of the respondents feel that Civil Engineering needs an energy background information system. Based on questionnaire responses, readings, and interviews, the requirements for such a system are discussed. Sources of energy information which should be incorporated into an Air Force Energy Information System are described. The system could be established during the current headquarters reorganization.
