This report and its executive summary AFHRL-TR-78-24 concern the impact of improved maintenance guidance and information IMG and I, as well as task oriented training TOT technologies an DOD maintenance, personnel and training systems. The IMG and I considered include fully proceduralized job performance aid FPJPA technology for both non-troubleshooting non-TS and troubleshooting TS tasks the Army New Look for non-TS tasks and for TS tasks only the traditional and enriched FORECAST aid, traditional and enriched logic tree troubleshooting aid LTTA, and traditional and Air Force symbolic integrated maintenance system SIMS, as well as a newer form of SIMS called the functionally oriented maintenance manuals FOMM. However, the technologies or concepts, whose effectiveness is supported by comparative hard data, include only the FPJPA, FORECAST aid, enriched LTTA, and AF SIMS. These hard data indicate that quality implementation of any of these technologies or concepts will result in more efficient performance of maintenance tasks than the use of the traditional maintenance manual TMM. In this regard, there are no hard data which indicate that the FOMM is more effective than the AF SIMS. But, by far the most dramatic reductions of the life cycle cost LCC or hardware ownership can be realized by the quality integrated application of three of these types of IMG and I with TOT i.e., FPJPA, FORECAST TS Aid, and enriched LTTA. Of these, the FPJPA has the most potential. Much of the executive summary and the body of the white paper are similar in organization and content.
