Abstract : Four steps in the design of performance aids are presented: (1) identification of task elements for which aids should be provided; (2) determination of appropriate functional characteristics of aids for these task elements; (3) specification of the physical design characteristics of the aids to carry out the functions; and (4) evaluation, modification, and updating of the aids. supplementary data on capabilities of performance aids are presented for use with the procedure. The procedure is untried and of necessity uses stopgap solutions to problems on which much research or development is needed. (Author)
