Abstract:

This paper reviews and summarizes 17 studies concerned with the collection of objective performance data for the purpose of evaluating the effectiveness of maintenance training. The results are discussed in relation to five major aspects of evaluating the effectiveness of training 1 transfer of training, 2quality of simulation, 3 effects of training on individual performance, 4 differential effects of alternative methods of training, and 5 the effects of training and experience on unit performance and operational readiness. Based on the analyses, a number of areas for future research and development were suggested. Keywords simulators, simulated aviation maintenance training, training research, performance measurement.
