Abstract : A study design is presented for application to airmen technicians performing electronic maintenance to determine those variables which may serve as indicators of technician proficiency. A literature review was conducted and variables indicating some promise of predictive value of quality of electronic maintenance performance were selected for further refinement. A method for the quantification of human maintenance performance in electronic systems is provided. A mathematical plan for the development of a human performance figure of merit and determination of degree, and significance of relationship between the variables and the figure of merit is included.
