Integrated Training System for Air Force On-the-Job Training: Specification Development. Final Technical Paper.
Carson, Stuart B.; And Others.
The Air Force conducted this study for two purposes: (1) to define the system of Air Force On-the-Job Training (OJT); and (2) to prepare a set of functional specifications for an integrated, base-level OJT evaluation and management system with linkages to the Major Commands and Air Staff. The study was conducted in four phases. During the first phase, the requirements for an effective OJT system were defined. This phase was followed by a feasibility analysis of computer-based Integrated Training System (ITS) design alternatives. In the third phase, ITS specifications were developed, while ITS development and demonstration alternatives were analyzed in the final phase. The study concluded that there is great potential for increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of mission-oriented training by the application of computer technology to the functions of instructional management, scheduling, reporting, external evaluation, and recordkeeping.
