The report provides simplified instructions for writing and illustrating Job Performance Aids (JPAs). JPAs are step-by-step work instructions geared to the intellectual level of the performer and background training aids for psychological task preparedness. The first two sections of the report discuss the origin of JPAs and the principles of task performance analysis. Section 3 gives detailed instructions for writing JPAs which includes guidelines on grammatical form, vocabulary, and format. Section 4 discusses the expanded uses of JPAs, and section 5 presents detailed instructions for illustrating JPAs (lighting, projections, flow diagrams, typography, and layout). Section 6 discusses modifying JPAs to meet ad hoc training requirements. Three appendixes comprise more than half the document and include a verb list and a conjunction list (which provide definitions, examples, preference ranks, and synonyms by order of preference: and a sample JPA covering foam-in-place packaging.
