The proliferation of microcomputers is a reality. During this study, we researched the implementation and use of microcomputers for aviation logistics support in the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing. In the course of our research, we interviewed Staff Officers and other personnel involved with automation and aviation logistics support. We saw first hand how these microcomputer systems were being employed. Based upon accepted theory and current ideas regarding the use of information technology, we analyzed the methods and effectiveness of microcomputer implementation and use across the Wing. We found a high degree of variability in the implementation methods and use of microcomputer systems. A great deal of work, remains to be done. We think that much of what we discovered in the course of our study is applicable across organizational boundaries within the United States Marine Corps.
