Abstract : The roles and participation of the managers in the Office of the Indonesian Defense Logistics Assistant has always been a major important factor in the establishment of the Indonesian Defense Logistics Management Information System (MIS). The objective of this research was to develop a procedure to describe the basic roles of these managers during the MIS development. A review of classical system development methodologies and factors affecting the success and failure of MIS was used as a foundation for developing the procedures. The seven steps of MIS design as outlined by Joel E. Ross was selected, enumerated, and applied to the Office of the Indonesian Defense Logistics Assistant environment. Further analysis on Determination of Information Needs was used as an example. Although additional research involving how to implement the managers' roles in the MIS development will be needed, this research will become a useful MIS development reference guide for the managers in the Office of the Indonesian Defense Logistics Assistant.
