Abstract:

This document summarizes the research and development activities undertaken to develop the Training Decisions System TDS. The TDS is a computer-based decision aid to be used in planning the what training content, the where technical school, Field Training Detachment FTD, on-the-job training OJT, and the when at what point in an airmans career. Further, the TDS incorporates optimization strategies to allow training managers to ask what if questions related to current and possible future policy changes within the Air Force training environment. In addition, this report contains a brief conceptual overview of the three major data-based subsystems and the fourth integratingoptimization subsystem which compose the present TDS. The first subsystem of the TDS is the Task Characteristics Subsystem TCS. The TCS identifies what tasks are required to be trained and where to allocate those tasks for the most efficient training. The second subsystem of the TDS is the Field Utilization Subsystem FUS.
