Abstract :


This article presents selected results from an empirical investigation into the use of computer networks in aerospace engineering. Such networks allow aerospace engineers to communicate with people and access remote resources through electronic mail, file transfer, and remote log-in. The study drew its subjects from private sector, government, and academic organization in the U.S. aerospace industry. Data presented here were gathered in a national mail survey, conducted in Spring 1993, that was distributed to aerospace engineers performing a wide variety of jobs. Results from the mail survey provide an overview of the current use of computer networks in the aerospace industry, suggest factors associated with the use of networks, and identify perceived impacts of networks on aerospace engineering work and communication. Such data are important in planning for the development of policies and features of the National Research and Education Network (NREN) if it is to meet the needs of its intended users.
