Implementation of Systems Engineering Concepts in Army Training.
Ricketson, D. Schley; And Others
A review of systems engineering concepts as applied to training programs at Army training schools was conducted. It was concluded that through systems engineering, the programs are being reoriented toward actual job requirements, reducing the "nice-to-know" and focusing on the "need-to-know." Since the programs are being constructed by personnel relatively unskilled in systems engineering and training program design, appropriate training methods are recommended. An Army-developed systems engineering guide was reviewed and reduced to outline form, and a graphic isplay of products of information and sub-products, or elements of work, was prepared. (Author)
