Abstract:

This thesis was a general attempt to determine if Logistics Support Analysis LSA process effectiveness could be measured with the confines of the Aeronautical Systems Division. Surveys of opinion were sent to LSA program managers representing several program offices and general attitudes were collected in response to forty-three measurement questions. Response packages were returned by sorted, categorized, and analyzed, against a background of five major research questions, ranging from the measurability of LSA process effectiveness to the predictive factors contributing to increased levels of overall effectiveness. Results from the study clearly indicate a preponderance of evidence suggesting that LSA process effectiveness is indeed measurable. While this is clearly the first significant step in modeling the effectiveness issue, the research goes on to identify accepted predictive factors to be used in program assessment. Several categories of factors were examined and offer a point of departure for indepth variable analysis. Finally the study investigates the qualifications of individual program managers and suggests criteria for more precise measurement. Success of the research lead to detailed conclusions and recommendations for areas requiring future emphasis. Author
