Abstract:

The Air Force Standard Base Supply System SBBS produces a number of standard management reports to provide the statistical data necessary for managing an effective supply account. One of these reports, the D-14, is meant to provide base supply decision makers with the information they need to manage their accounts on a daily basis. However, because of the volume of data contained in this report, its ability to provide useful information is suspect. The objective of this research was to transform the data currently provided by the SBBS in the D-14 daily report into information that is more useful to supply managers by applying the principles of decision support technology. Keywords Management information systems, Information retrieval, Decision making, Information processing. jes
