Abstract:

Air Force managers require adequate and timely information in order to make effective decisions regarding reliability and maintainability RM issues. Since 1980, at least two Air Force organizations have contracted for additional computer data base systems to improve their RM data requirements. These data base systems provide real-time maintenance and operational data on certain weapons systems. This study analyzed the output characteristics of these new data base systems to determine if they did provide improved information and comparison with thee standard Air Force maintenance and operational data reports. It was shown that the two new data base systems did provide more timely RM data which resulted in information that allowed for effective and efficient managerial decision making. However, all the timely information available for managerial decisions will be hindered until data input errors are reduced. Author
