Abstract:

The purpose of this report is to document the types of support required by various instructional media. Before selecting and procuring a media device, it is important to determine the total array of resources that must also be procured and maintained in order to support that device. Instructional media must be stored, utilized, serviced, monitored, and supplied with current coursewares. All this requires personnel, facilities, equipment, and materialssupplies. Without these supporting resources, the benefits of the training medium are either degraded or obviated completely. These resources may be viewed as the hidden costs or media device procurement, or as a shopping list of items and personnel that must be maintained in order to conduct a functional training program. This document does not offer fine-grained analysis and direction as to the number of pencils or desks to order. That level of detail may be found in development report number 21, The F-16 Instructional System Cost Study Report. The purpose of the present report is to provide more general information to assist in selecting among a range of instructional media. Once these decisions have been made, the information in the cost study is helpful in implementing the system. For the initial decision-making, however, the level of detail documented in this report is far more appropriate.
