Abstract:

A human factors analysis of two prototype Army Maintenance Training and Evaluation Simulation System AMTESS devices was conducted. A variety of analytic procedures was applied to assess the degree to which the devices met standards in the areas of hardware, software, and instructional features of the courseware. Both devices met hardware and software standards critical to the performance of their training function, but the courseware did not appear to have been designed around important learning principles. The appendixes consist of 1472G-based checklists for the Grumman and SevilleBurtek Devices. Keywords Maintenance training devices Computerized training devices Instructional features assessment Generic maintenance training devices and Courseware assessment.
