Relating Disparate Computer Training Task Data Files.
Evans, Richard M.; Reed, Robert W.
Military training information is not available from a single, well-structured electronic source. It typically exists in multiple formats created by multiple software products, usually incompatible. The training analyst thus has the job of collecting that which is available and converting it to a format that can be processed by existing software. Further complicating the job is language ambiguity. The use of different terms or phrases when referring to the same topic is an inevitable outcome of many authors working on many files. Methods for converting information on training tasks stored in multiple incompatible records into a common form--American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII)--and for working through the language ambiguities are presented. An example of the procedure is provided, and possible future applications of the procedure are described. (GL)
