An investigation of the planning- and operating-data requirements and information flow patterns for the strategic-missile force. The main function considered is the measurement and control of maintenance-operations interactions that determine launch capability. The study discusses decision areas, data requirements, desirable system characteristics, and one proposed system. The authors suggest that immediate consideration be given to testing the feasibility and desirability of the proposed system in an appropriate Air Force environment.
