The purpose of this Users Manual is to familiarize the non-ADP user of the Design of Training Systems DOTS programs with the operation of the three DOTS models and the DOTS data base. It is concerned with methods for using the DOTS programs without detailed treatment of the design rationale or specified programming techniques employed in developing the models and the data base. The design of the system components is covered in detail in Volumes I and II of TAEG Report 12-2, Design of Training Systems Phase II Report. Detailed programming information is contained in TAEG Report No. 29, The Design of Training Systems Program Maintenance Manual. This manual is organized in four major sections covering the DOTS data base, the Educational Technology Evaluation ETE model, the System Capabilities Requirements and Resources SCRR model and the Training Process Flow TPF model respectively. The sections dealing with the models are all organized similarly and include subsections on model architecture, operational procedures and operational test. The model architecture section describes the model for the user in terms of model functions, significant design assumptions, input data requirements and output data descriptions. Operational procedures are covered as they relate specifically to the individual models and contain the steps necessary to apply the models to appropriate problems. Operational tests are specified to the extent necessary to assess system functional integrity but do not cover tests to determine the validity of the system in specific applications.
