A more sophisticated formulation of the problem was developed which recognizes the need for different task taxonomic systems in accordance with the requirements of military users. Three provisional approaches each of which seemed to have maximum relevance for a different type of military user were selected the ability-requirement approach the task characteristics approach, and a third approach using a systems-language model. Work was also initiated on the development of user-oriented evaluation systems by which the procedures associated with these three provisional approaches could be evaluated. Finally, a specially selected Human Performance Data Base was assembled, and information retrieval procedures were designed which would allow interested users to retrieve data according to the task descriptive system of interest.
