Simulation in Maintenance Training: Now That I've Thrown Out the Bath Water, Where is the Dear Baby?
Brock, John F.
There is little question that, over the next decade, the military services are going to be committing significant resources to developing simulators for use in maintenance training courses. The arguments for such a direction are persuasive, particularly in terms of training dollar savings. This paper reviews the past R&D on maintenance training, discusses current developments and trends, and discusses the trade-offs involved in simulating maintenance tasks. It is suggested that current maintenance training programs are only training a subset of required skills, but that introducing simulation may simply change the subset being trained. A program to avoid this problem is discussed. (Author)
