Abstract : This research effort measured the effectiveness of the Air Force Institute of Technology School of Systems and Logistics Supply Management Option. Graduates provided feedback and data on the usefulness of their graduate education in the performance of supply duties. The target population was all supply officers who graduated from AFIT and are currently on active duty in supply jobs. This population was divided into two subpopulations: supply management option graduates and non-supply option graduates. Surveys were mailed to 168 supply officers who have graduated from AFIT. The survey consisted of three parts. Part I was biographical data; Part II included questions on supply tasks; and Part III involved questions on skills, concepts and techniques learned at AFIT. The data were analyzed using a mean score differentiation for each of the questions from Parts II and III of the survey. The differences between the two subpopulations were analyzed, along with the differences of the mean scores within the subpopulations. Research results indicate that there is little difference between the usefulness of the supply option and other options taken by supply officers. Te results indicated the supply management option was effective. (Author)
