Abstract : The Executive Summary is the first volume in a three-volume final program report. It contains a summary of the objectives, methodology, results, conclusions, and recommendations of the Integrated Maintenance Information System (IMIS) program. The overall scope of the IMIS program was to (1) identity and define the requirements for IMIS; (2) develop specifications documenting the requirements; (3) design and develop a demonstration system capable of supporting the essential IMIS requirements; (4) evaluate the IMIS concept and requirements using the demonstration system; and (3) finalize the IMIS specifications by incorporating the results of the tests, demonstrations, and evaluations. The program was structured to satisfy the scope by applying information gained during each phase to the subsequent phases. The IMIS Field Test and Demonstration was separated into three parts: Debrief Test, End-to-End Demonstration, and Fault Isolation Test. The primary objectives of these activities were to (1) test the IMIS concept under realistic operational conditions, where possible, (2) evaluate the effectiveness of IMIS in supporting the maintenance mission of the unit, (3) demonstrate the technical advantages of IMIS over the current system, and (4) identity strengths and weaknesses of the demonstration system which could be used in defining requirements for a production implementation
