Abstract:

This thesis analyzed a subset of data from the Leadership and Management Development Center LMDC data base containing responses to the Organizational Assessment Package OAP survey administered to aircraft and munitions maintenance officers in the maintenance career field. The data consists of demographic data and responses to attitudinal questions organized into twenty-one statistical factors. A literature review related job satisfaction, factors of job satisfaction, and maintenance organization to factors measured by the OAP. Discriminant analysis was used to attempt to discriminate between the job satisfaction of maintenance officers in centralized and decentralized maintenance organizations. No significant difference in the job satisfaction of OAD factors related to job satisfaction could be found between maintenance officers in centralized and decentralized maintenance organizations. The research was concluded with recommended areas for further research.
