DOD USER-NEEDS STUDY, PHASE II -- FLOW OF SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL INFORMATION WITHIN THE DEFENSE INDUSTRY. FINAL REPORT. VOLUME III, A. FREQUENCY DISTRIBUTIONS AND CORRELATION, B. RELATIONSHIP AND COMPARISON.
GOODMAN, ARNOLD F.; AND OTHERS
A STUDY WAS MADE OF THE NATION'S DEFENSE INDUSTRY TO DETERMINE ITS INFORMATION NEEDS AND THE FLOW OF SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL INFORMATION (FLOW PROCESS) NECESSARY TO SATISFY THESE NEEDS. VOLUME I, LI 000 345, OF THE THREE VOLUME FINAL REPORT IS AN OVERVIEW OF THE OTHER TWO VOLUMES AND INCLUDES GUIDELINES FOR MANAGEMENT DECISIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE FUTURE. VOLUME II, LI 000 347, DESCRIBES THE TECHNICAL APPROACH, FINDINGS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE STUDY. THE THIRD VOLUME PRESENTS THE REDUCED DATA WHICH WAS COLLECTED FROM 1500 INDIVIDUALS IN 83 ORGANIZATIONS WITHIN THE DEFENSE INDUSTRY. ANALYSIS OF THE DATA INCLUDED COMPILATION OF FREQUENCY DISTRIBUTIONS FOR ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS AND PAIRS OF QUESTIONS. IN ADDITION THE QUANTITATIVE DATA WERE TRANSFORMED INTO NUMERICAL FORM, AND MODELS, WHICH ARE PRESENTED, WERE SPECIFIED FOR RELATIONSHIPS AMONG ELEMENTS OF THE FLOW PROCESS. THE MODELS WERE ESTIMATED FROM THE DATA, BY MEANS OF REGRESSION ANALYSIS, TO YIELD SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIPS AND FACTORS WITHIN THE FLOW PROCESS. FOUR TYPES OF DATA ARE PRESENTED IN TABLES--ONE-WAY FREQUENCY DISTRIBUTIONS, TWO-WAY FREQUENCY DISTRIBUTIONS, STEPWISE REGRESSION RELATIONSHIPS, AND COMPARISON OF PHASE I (A EARLIER PART OF THE STUDY CARRIED ON WITHIN THE DEFENSE INDUSTRY) AND PHASE II DISTRIBUTIONS. AN INDEX TO THE TABLES ACCOMPANIES THEM. VOLUME III IS AVAILABLE AS AD-649-284 FROM THE CLEARINGHOUSE FOR FEDERAL SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL INFORMATION, SPRINGFIELD, VIRGINIA 22151, $3.00 FOR HARD COPY, $0.65 FOR MICROFICHE, 543 PAGES.
