Abstract:

A study was made to determine what the barriers are to implementing information systems at a fleet aviation squadron. Various squadron personnel were interviewed on-site in order to find out what resources were available at the squadron, how they were being used, and what new applications were desired. Members of the information systems staff of the type commander were interviewed as well. The data were analyzed and eight major barriers were identified. Some of the barriers were under control of the squadron, some were external to the squadron, and some were a blend of both. The findings suggest that those barriers identified as squadron-controlled can be overcome through careful planning, better utilization of on-board resources, and establishment of a squadron computer training program.
