Abstract:

The methods of task and skill analysis are described in this procedural guide. FORECAST is directed toward developing means for accurate forecasting the training demands imposed by new electronic weapon systems. Methods for forecasting training needs for a guided missile system were constructed and experiments were performed. The system of analysis was modified and refined in FORECAST II, in which transfer of training, increased proficiency, and equipment-minimizing effects of the method were studied. A study of the application of the FORECAST concepts to equipment other than that on which the methods were developed was also conducted and these procedures have now been incorporated in the IMPROVED NIKE HERCULES HIPAR course. It is believed that the procedures described herein can serve as a basis for further implementation or development of this type of analysis by personnel working in this technical field.
