Abstract:

As a result of a short study of the process by which training systems are improved, it is recommended that the Navy create a training improvement engineering function. This function would have the capability, responsibility and funding to design and implement improved training systems on the basis of need or as a result of new technology. This function would focus especially on situations where a change in technology leads to facility and resonce requirements which cut across training programs. The use of computers to aid in training management or to deliver instructional materials is an example of such a change. A program for developing new, theory-based, formalized approaches to the design of training programs is presented. A definition of the overall Navy training system is developed as a basis for discussing organizational and functional change.
