The on-time production of instructional materials is a critical factor in the successful implementation of the F-16 training system. It is estimated that the total production requirements for the B, IP, and continuation courses will be 405 workbooks, 405 slidetape sets, and 90 videotapes. In addition, another 1,012 pages of printing will be required for handbooks, tests, and checklists. These estimates were based on the number of segments suggested by the task listing document and certain assumptions regarding the nature of the workbooks and tapes required. the production and reproduction capabilities located at Hill AFB, ogden, Utah were examined to determine if the production and reproduction needs of the F-16 project could be met there. Production refers to the development of original instructional materials both prototype and final and the preparation of reproducible masters. Reproduction is the duplication of camera-ready masters, slides, audio and videotape masters for distribution to users. Major concerns in the establishment of this interface between government-supplied and contractor-supplied agencies and personnel are accountability, communication, and control. The contractor is accountable for instructional and technical quality and the cost and timelines of product. Problems can result in the communication of necessary directions and specifications between producing agencies. The concern over control deals with the loss of control on the part of the contractor over those who are producing a contract deliverable for which the contractor is responsible.
