Abstract:

This handbook contains the procedural steps in the application of a technique known as Training Analysis Procedure TAP. This method has been developed primarily for the use of Training Sutiation Analysis TSA teams of the Naval Training Device Center. The reader primarily interest in the methodological development is referred to Volume I. TAP is basically a procedure for utilizing information. TAP is a ranking of the tasks within a system in terms of the payoff of task training as reflected by improved system operation per training equipment dollar expended. Task performance is quantitatively defined, for purposes of TAP, in terms of the time required for the operator to perform the task and the probability that the task is performed accurately. Task training can influence either performance time, performance accuracy, or both. System improvement resulting from task training is defined as the percentage change in the number of successful system operations accomplished in a given length of time. The figure of merit adopted for a task is the improvement in system performance resulting from training for a given task. The selection of a task for incorporation into the system training environment is based on the highest ratio of a tasks figure of merit to the cost of the equipment required to train for the task. TAP requires that certain kinds of information be developed by the TSA team. Author
