Abstract:

The project explored the problems of maintenance training simulation design and acquisition. The report describes the procedures developed for designing and documenting maintenance trainers i.e., the procedures for determining when to use a simulator, the procedures for determining the degree of fidelity of the trainer components, and the procedures for selecting and defining the instructional features of the maintenance trainer. In addition, the report describes the project-generated ISD Instructional System Development Derived Training Equipment Design model specification and the Prime Development Specification for Maintenance Training Simulators. Both are model or generic specifications. The ISD-derived model specification is used to communicate to the System Program Office SPO the results of the ISD analysis with respect to training equipment requirements. The Prime Development Model Specification is used by the SPO to construct a procurement specification which contains both training-oriented and engineering requirements. The report also discusses nine problem areas e.g., the increasing emphasis for an accelerated acquisition schedule, the lack of continual communications between ISD analysts and SPO personnel, the reassignment of ISD analysts and the lack of documentation of corporate knowledge. For each prolem, recommendationsalternative-solutions are offered.
