Abstract
One of the major causes for the failure of ROK Army Logistics Management Information System (MlS) is that it does not satisfy the user's information requirements. This, in turn, is most often caused by the fact that those requirements are difficult to obtain accurately and completely. Simply asking the. user what he needs is inadequate without managers' involvement. This thesis reviews the current ROK Army Logistics MIS problems and focuses on the involvement of the manager in information requirements determination and the importance of information requirements determination in the development of MIS. Three alternatives are presented to increase the manager' s involvement involving user self-determination of needs in the ROKA Logistics MIS development. The study concludes that the use of coordination groups represents the most practical and effective solution to the ROKA's Logistics MIS problems.
