Abstract:

This study investigated the computer information needs of Integrated Logistics Support Managers in System Program Offices at Wright-Patterson AFB, OH, with the results being used to adapt the Armys expert system, The Logistics Planning and Requirements Simplification System LOGPARS, for Air Force use. LOGPARS advises the managers on several important logistics tasks, including general strategy formulation, preparation of an Integrated Logistics Support Plan, a Statement of Work, a Contract Data Requirement List, and warranty clauses. The result of this study was the identification of the processes, capabilities, and resources required of the Acquisition Logistics Division ALD to successfully change and maintain LOGPARS. The prototype provided the Acquisition Logistics Division with the beginnings of a true knowledge-based system to make logistics planning and requirements determination simpler. Based on the success of the thesis effort, ALDLSL plans to complete the LOGPARS modification project and make the Air Force version available to all acquisition logistics offices. SDW
