Recent advances in technology and rapid changes in the world have placed increasingly stringent demands on the human operator in many military systems. The need for improved and more varied skill levels, coupled with current fiscal constraints, requires that modern military training systems impart the complicated, higher-order skills required to operate modern combat systems. Furthermore, this must be accomplished in less time, and with a lower dollar investment than in recent history. Therefore, the modern training challenge demands an optimization of training resources--a return on investment that results in an uncompromisingly high level of readiness at the lowest possible cost, and in the shortest time. The purpose of the present research was to advance understanding of effective training system design by investigating factors that may significantly affect the success of training in terms of performance improvement in the operational environment.
