Abstract : Thirteen years of Air Force design and development went into the Maintenance Management Information and Control System (MMICS), an automated maintenance information system, because maintenance managers need fast, up-to-date maintenance-related data. MMICS is an on-line computer system accessed through remote terminals located in the work area. These terminals communicate with a central base-level computer via telephone circuits. MMICS has wide application and provides automated information to managers of aircraft, missile and communications-electronic organizations. MMICS is currently in operation at one hundred forty Air Force units located at more than one hundred bases. Approximately eight hundred remote terminals and five hundred line printers are installed and in use worldwide. In aircraft maintenance organizations, MMICS provides information on changing aircraft and equipment conditions, parts requirements, aircraft schedules, equipment status and personnel resources and training. Personnel training is an important aspect of a manager's job and is vital to any organization that must maintain a proficient and experienced work force. The purpose of the project is to examine, determine and evaluate the benefit of the MMICS to managers and supervisors in conducting and monitoring training and training programs within their sections.
