Abstract:

This project examines the factors that must be considered before meaningful manpower standards can be established for the Directorates of Materiel Mgmt. DMMs within the Air Logistics Centers ALCs. The project included Systems Analytic discussions with management cadres at each DMM, surveys of SMM customers and user directorates, and computer-aided DMM functional performance profile evaluation by ALC and DMM executives. Major findings indicate there is no clear agreement among DMM executives. Major findings indicate there is no clear agreement among DMM management regarding the functions and roles of the DMMs. Differences of opinion regarding the functions and roles are greater within each DMM than across the different ALCs. Useful manpower standards can be established when the functions and roles are more precisely defined and when measures of effectiveness that relate functions to outcomes are developed.
