Although development of the management diagnosis and planning method has formed one domain of agricultural management research for many years in recent years the approach which does research and development in these techniques with the form of a computer system is seen. By development research of such a system it becomes important by evaluating a system to clarify the validity and subject. It is thought that the attribute of users also influences the evaluation result of a system with the performance and validity of the system itself. However the research which clarified this point positively is not seen. Therefore in this paper for the training participant of the FAPS the relevance of the questionnaire reply pattern and the participant attribute was analyzed statistically. The factors which specify the degree of comprehension of a system the degree of satisfaction evaluation and a use intention are clarified.<br>Cluster analysis was applied to the 125 training participant questionnaire and seven clusters were extracted based on the degree of similar of the reply pattern of eight questions (a total of 69 choices). It became clear by comparing these results with the training participant attribute for every cluster that a reply pattern changes with occupations (a research worker a extension staff etc.) special field of study (management or Crop) practical experience in application of mathematical programming such as linear programming exercise experience of FAPS etc.<br>By quantitative quantification analysis type II, it was thought that practical experience of a mathematical programming, specialty, and occupations are major factors of determining comprehensive evaluation. "Management" in speciality "Researcher" in occupations with practical experience of a mathematical programming have the positive influence on degree of comprehension of a system satisfaction evaluation and intention of use.
