Abstract:

The scope and complexity of major instructional design and development programs and the sophistication and detailed level of definition of particular training development models utilized have greatly increased. The advanced planning and day to day management necessary for such programs have become commensurately more difficult and complex. The interactions between the many resource personnel and schedule requirements involved increase the difficulty of identifying specific sources of problems and responding to them without causing problems elsewhere. In addition, the models being used tend to have an increasing number of engineering characteristics rather than artistic attributes. That is, they are characterized by increasingly well defined procedures and techniques which offer the potential for much better quality control consistency of output across different personnel, and they simplify the problem of training and standardizing approaches for development staffs. In response to the challenges of these emerging models interest is greatly increasing in comprehensive real-time integrated information management systems which incorporate a variety of flexible management projection and simulation capabilities, and which include rich arrays of standardized protocols, staff training materials, and interactive job aids.
