Abstract:

A task analysis is a very critical and fundamental component of an ISD project since it ultimately determines what tasks and contents will be included in the training program. The existing task analysis for the F-16 pilot compiled by General Dynamics was analyzed in terms of the specific requirements of the F-16 training program. The level of detail and scope of this existing task analysis were found to be adequate. The coverage of job tasks was found to be inadequate and in need of revision. The mission orientation of the existing analysis was considered to be weak in the areas of tactics, premission planning, and air-to-surface combat. The logical consistency of the analysis was found to be weak and in need for revision in the areas of air maneuvers and system operations. It was concluded that the existing F-16 task analysis would be helpful as a suggestive tool, but additional analysis is required to provide a solid foundation for the F-16 ISD effort. Areas particularly needing attention are those behaviors associated with cognitive performance e.g., air-to-air or air-to-surface combat, mission planning, navigation, etc. as opposed to equipment operation.
