The automated munitions supply management information system MIS is a subsystem of the Standard Base Supply System MIS, yet it has received little individualized analysis to determine the adequacy of data provided to the Munitions Accountable Supply Officer MASO. This study addresses the data requirements of MASOs, aligned under maintenance organizations, operating throughout the Air Force. A survey instrument was used to collect data from 75 current MASOs for analysis of both data received and data required for the performance of their duties. The instrument included questions on demographics, task descriptions, data adequacy, and MIS deficiencies. Analysis determined the eight most important computer data sources utilized. From these products, a data requirements list was compiled and contrasted with data currently available. Final analysis results indicated a general satisfaction with the existing MIS however, five major deficiencies were noted. Based on study of the five deficient areas, the author suggests several recommendations that, if implemented, could enhance the current computer products. Author
