Abstract : By 1972, the United States Air Force has had an aircraft engine status reporting system for over twenty-two years. Since new advances in engine design could possibly overburden the system, a cross examination was made. The decision making environment of the Engine Item Manager was evaluated, along with the current reporting system. In addition, maintenance, supply, and transportation information systems were examined to see what parallel engine data they presented. As a result of this research, a new system was proposed that would eliminate the Engine Status Reporting System at a substantial saving to the Air Force.
