This paper presents a model for documenting training equipment designs derived from an Instructional System Development ISD analysis. The model, presented in handbook format, contains blanks to be completed by the ISD analysts. Since the model is appropriate for documenting various kinds of possible designs, it is accompanied by an appendix which provides instructions for applying it. The model provides a method for communicating a specific training equipment design to the procurement office after ISD analysis has established a need for a maintenance trainer. The model has been specifically organized and formatted so that it can be easily used by procurement office personnel to prepare the procurement specification that eventually goes to contractors for bids. The model provides the ISD analysts an opportunity to specify such design information as a characteristics of the target population who will use the trainer b a list of training objectives to be achieved using the training devices c a list of tasks to be practiced andor acquired on the trainer and a list of malfunctions to be presented by the simulator for isolation andor correction d a scenario discussing how the trainer will be used to achieve the specified training objectives e a list of physical and functional characteristics of the components to be represented on the trainer and f a description of instructional features required on the trainer to facilitate training objective achievement. When utilized, the model will improve, standardize, and facilitate the communication between ISD and procurement personnel.
