Abstract:

In past years, research by Air Force and other DOD agencies has resulted in the development of several more effective techniques for developing and for presenting technical data for maintenance. Application of these development techniques and improved presentation formats for operational use has been hindered by the fact that technical data managers frequently do not have sufficient information available on the improved techniques and formats to allow them to select and procure the improved data. The guidelines developed by this effort can be used by personnel who develop technical data for the Air Force and by those who manage such efforts. A thorough review of the state of the art in developing, presenting and procuring technical data was accomplished to provide the basis for developing the guidelines. This was accomplished first by reviewing available formats, specifications, and applicable literature and by then conducting extensive interviews with government and industry personnel who are knowledgeable of, and experienced in, current technical data procedures. The next phase involved analysis of these data, the selection of candidate formats, the development of descriptions on the formats, development of criteria for selecting formats and development of guidelines for procuring data. This report provides specific information and guidance for the acquisition and management of Air Force technical orders T.O.s. The report provides the following information an overview explaining the guidebook scope, organization, and contents accompanied with an explanation of how to use the guidebook.
