The TPSSTraining and Performance Support System is a computer-based training and job aid system scheduled for delivery in mid-February 1984 to the Electronic Systems Division of the Air Force Systems Command at Hanscom AFB, MA. In addition to hardware and software components instructional materials have been developed to aid Air Force computer specialists responsible for managing the acquisition of computer software for major defense systems. The system was designed to provide a capability for increasing the initial productivity of professional personnel who must assume new job responsibilities. The design concept links job preparation with job performance by 1 providing instruction for and an explanation of major job task, and 2 providing routine access to task-related information for use during job performance activities. This technique provides workers with performance aids in the work environment that are an extension of the instructional content structures. The combination of use on demand and the integration of instruction and information provides a new dimension in individualized instruction through learner control.
