Abstract:

The work reported here covers an analysis of armor crewman job tasks for the purpose of designing training for reserve components that use the M48A5 tank. Task data were generated and organized for each tank crew position in a form that shows which tasks are common and unique to three tanks, M48A5, M60A1, and M60A3. Task criticality was estimated using a paired comparison rating technique in which raters selected hypothetical crewmen for a combat mission, based on which tasks the crewmen could and could not perform. Reliability of the ratings averaged .68. Ways of improving the quality of task criticality studies were discussed.
