Abstract:

The Army Research Institute is currently conducting three research efforts that use computer-based simulations to provide maintenance training. Game-Based Learning investigates the use of computer-based games to train electronics diagnostic skills. Human Performance in Fault Diagnosis Tasks evaluates the use of context-free tasks to train individuals to maintain actual equipment. The Adaptive Computerized Training System applies artificial intelligence techniques to electronic troubleshooting training. These efforts have the common goal to provide the student with generalizable diagnostic skills rather than equipment-specific procedures. This report describes the techniques being developed, research findings, and future research directions.
