Integration of Training Systems and Analyses

  • Judy A. Oneal


Training people in the use, maintenance, and support of complex operational systems and equipment is well recognized in both military and commercial applications as one of the most important elements of system performance. Too often efforts to provide effective training either come after the design and development of the operational system or overemphasize the hardware and technology aspects of training devices. In either case, the expected benefits from training for the costs invested have been disappointing. The Systems Approach to Training (SAT) has long been recognized as beneficial to making training programs more effective, but even in areas like weapons systems development where SAT is applied extensively, total integration has not occurred. MANPRINT offers an opportunity for the development of completely integrated training systems through a more comprehensive approach to the conduct of training analyses. This chapter describes (1) the background leading up to the MANPRINT approach applied to training system development; (2) a conceptual model and methodology for integrating training systems and analyses on a timeline matching operational equipment design and development; and (3) the effect of MANPRINT (through integrating training system development and analyses) on operational equipment and training system development.
