Abstract:

The objective of this model development effort was to provide a uniform, thorough, adaptive and efficient procedure to help derive specifications and effectiveness measures for any planned or existing human- machine system, and especially for a training system. The present report describes results of almost three years of work, in which the analytic process model APM was developed from earlier models, applied in sample fashions to an existing system the Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle and placed onto an Apple II computer to demonstrate its automated, interactive potential. The APM guidelines and procedures are also documented here. Recommendations are made for enlarging and completing the model and for its dissemination to Army users. A separate Operations Handbook was issued for the computer-aided APM demonstration system. Author
