Task Analysis for Job Performance Aids and Related Training.
Foley, John P., Jr.
This paper presents several aspects of task analyses for maintenance jobs when these analyses are used as bases for the development of Job Performance Aids (JPAs) and job oriented training. It starts with a brief history of the development of task analysis technology and the part that Air Force research has played in this development. The fact that task identification is the first step in any task analysis is emphasized. After tasks are identified, the type of analysis depends on the purpose for which the analysis is being made. Task identification, based primarily on hardware analysis, is the most appropriate basis for maintenance jobs. A scheme or format to accomplish this, called a Task Identification Matrix, is presented and described. Also mentioned are a Task Description Index and Management Matrix, Task Step Data Detail Test Equipment and Tool Use Form. (The original paper was accompanied by a slide presentation and the greater part of the document consists of reproductions of these slides. The places where these slides fit into the text are indicated.) (Author/DS)
