A Systems Design Management Model for the Structuring and Simulation of Selected Training Institutions.
Thompson, Paul Donovan
The purpose of this study was to define the role and elements of a systems approach for training administrators; to develop a model to serve as a guide for educational and training planners; and to provide a set of criteria for the optimum utilization of resources. The literature was reviewed, specific graphic and mathematical analysis in education and training analyzed, and a new synthesis devised for modeling and evaluation. Among other findings, it was found that a substantial deficiency existed in the use of systems approach in training; task analysis was the method for achieving systems feedback to control and stabilize the optimum training system; and graphic analogs are valuable tools for analyzing existing institutions and for constructing new ones. The study also supported the integration of the Taxonomy of Educational Objectives into the learning system for training. It was recommended that the systems design should become a recognized discipline in training and design development. (Author/PT)
