The increasing sophistication of aviation equipment imposes more sophisticated maintenance procedures and increases the difficulty of providing trained maintenance personnel. To facilitate and improve training, the Chief of Naval Operations has selected the Simulated Avionics Maintenance Trainer SAMT for procurement and use at training schools. The Navy Personnel Research and Development Center NAVPERSRANDCEN has been tasked to develop a mechanical and electromechanical organizational-level SAMT generic specification defining the system evolution from concept, through development, to procurement. The objective of this effort was to analyze two existing generic specifications developed for the Naval Air Development Center NADC and the Air Force Human Resources Laboratory AFHRL respectively. Information obtained will be used in developing the SAMT generic specifications. The Navy and Air Force studies were examined as to their format and ease of comprehension, completeness, and interrelation among document sets. The processes described by these studies were then compared as to their assumptions, ability to meet established goals and objectives, applications, scope, and utility. Finally, the two processes were compared in terms of three procedure areas 1. Determining training requirements 2. Selecting media to meet training requirements and 3. Producing a procurement specification for training equipment acquisition.
