Abstract:

This report discusses the methodology and results of a research effort that was conducted to derive a set of design guidelines for maintenance training simulator MTS instructor stations and student stations. The first step in collecting the information necessary for developing the design guidelines was to develop a classification scheme for categorizing different MTSs by type. Next, an attribute taxonomy was constructed to delineate the different features characteristic of MTSs. Then a sample of 51 instructors was surveyed in order to determine the commonality of the attribute taxonomy features across 19 different MTSs. Finally, the same instructors were queried on their perceptions of the usefulness and training contribution of each of the critical features. The findings formed the foundation on which the design guidelines were based. Keywords Computer aided instruction Naval training.
