Abstract : The objectives of the study are to establish hierarchies of personal value concepts and operative goals of missile maintenance officers, to compare and contrast official and operative goals, and to find if the valuations vary with demographic variables. The primary orientation of missile maintenance officers is decidedly moral-ethical with a greater than expected proportion of respondents having mixed orientations. A hierarchy of 77 personal value concepts is presented with 'integrity' ranked first and 'change' ranked last. The questionnaire's 33 goals are classified as to mission related and mission ancillary official goals and unofficial goals. These are presented in a hierarchical form showing the maintenance officers' greatest concern to be to complete maintenance on time and in an orderly manner to fulfill mission requirements.
