Design of Training Systems Utility Assessment: The Training Process Flow and System Capabilities/Requirements and Resources Models Operating in the TRAPAC Environment.
Duffy, Larry R.
The report summarizes the results of a field test conducted for the purpose of determining the utility to Naval training of the Systems Capabilities/Requirements and Resources (SCRR) and the Training Process Flow (TPF) computer-based mathematical models. Basic descriptions of the SCRR and the TPF and their development are given. Training management applications in which context model utility was to be demonstrated during the field test at Commander Training Pacific (COMTRAPAC) are listed. Documented applications were distributed to Navy training personnel with accompanying questionnaires to determine staff workload associated with each application. Enhancement modifications to the model and data base were identified during interviews, presentations, and demonstrations. Five major field test task activities are described briefly and discussed again in greater detail with key exhibits of forms and presentations used in accomplishing the test. Recommendations were made to improve model and data base usage, and the general view was that the models could be useful as management tools if identified deficiencies were corrected. Appended material (31 pages) includes a meeting attendees list, DOTS data element definitions, field test questionnaire samples, and DOTS model/data base field test results summary. (Author/MS)
