Abstract:

This paper describes an early phase of a study to identify factors that influence the technical, physical, and psychological environment within which Air Force maintenance is performed. Findings will be used to establish a comprehensive plan for application of existing technology to current problems and a long-range plan for conduct of new research. Phase II, reported herein, developed the data collection and analysis procedures and instruments, and field tested them. The primary data collection method was a structured interview. The interviewee selected the topics to be discussed, in response to open-ended questions such as, What do you think could be done to improve Air Force maintenance The interviewers role was to ask clarifying questions and to record the interviewees statements. The statements are later categorized into one or more of about 200 categories and entered into a computer in subsequent phases. The data collected from active duty, Air Force Reserve, and Air National Guard aircraft maintenance organizations and missile maintenance organizations will be used to develop and prioritize research programs and plans for rapidly applying existing technology to identified problems.
