Training Device Design: Human Factors Requirements in the Technical Approach. Technical Report.
Smode, Alfred F.
Guidelines are presented for achieving the human factors inputs to the TA (Technical Approach) in the design process. (For each Navy training device, a TA determination provides for the evolution of the necessary technology.) A method is described which allows correlation of instructional requirements with engineering design solutions. The three major sections are: 1) techniques for deriving the information requirements relative to achieving simulation fidelity in trainee station design; 2) procedures for deriving the information requirements involved in setting up, controlling, monitoring, and evaluating performance at the instructor station; and 3) human factors test and evaluation requirements in the training device acceptance process. These are organized to assist the human factors specialist in determining that the device performs as advertised. (Author/JK)
