A Proposed Modified Technical Order System and Its Impact on Maintenance, Personnel and Training. Final Report for Period December 1974-September 1975.
Foley, John P., Jr.
The document presents immediate and long range plans for the systematic injection of Symbolic Integrated Maintenance Systems (SIMS) and Fully Proceduralized Job Performance Aids (FPJPA) materials into the current technical order system and the inclusion of job-oriented training matched to FPJPA into the training system of the Air Force. The text is structured in consonance with a matrix which indicates the relationship between categories of data and the users, as well as the possible impact of job-oriented training on maintenance and personnel systems. The various categories examined include: maintenance technical orders (TO); FPJPA; non-troubleshooting (non-TS) and troubleshooting (TS) tasks; maintenance dependency chart (MDC) based aids for TS. Chapters examine the functional categories of information and directions; an analysis of effectiveness considering data, training, and personnel; proposed modifications to the Air Force technical order (TO), training and personnel systems; implementation considerations. A summary, introduction, listing of 21 conclusions and 17 recommendations, and a project update are included. It is stated that the development and proper utilization of a technical order system that integrated FPJPA into the TO system would greatly improve the quality of maintenance and reduce on-the-job training.
