Abstract:

A job performance aid is a device designed to provide information to assist the worker in on-the-job task situations. The report concerns initial efforts to identify methods for furthering job aid development and implementation. Included in the report are the results of a literature review which confirmed that introducing job aids into task situations can reduce training requirements and improve task performance. Factors which are believed to have had a limiting influence on job aid employment are discussed. Preliminary accomplishments are cited including design of a categorization of job performance aids, construction of a survey questionnaire for gathering data on present conditions of job aid application within Navy ratings, and development of a job performance aid within the context of a nontechnical Navy task area.
