Abstract : Aviation logistics is a complex and multi-faceted activity, and is one in which management information systems (MIS) play a crucial role. This thesis examines the Korean Air Force Logistics MIS and proposes an alternative structure for the MIS structure. The thesis reviews the current information system structure for the Korean Air Force Logistics organization, and identifies some problem areas. An analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of centralization and decentralization is then provided based on literature findings. Following this analysis, a structured methodology is employed to investigate the appropriate centralization and decentralization structure for the Korean Air Force Logistics organization. The benefits of the proposed structure are discussed. Finally, suggestions for future research in this area are provided. (Author)
