Abstract : Rapid technological change makes it necessary to train and retrain personnel as man-machine systems and associated jobs are altered. Because of the continuing rise in required skill levels, the demand for high aptitude, highly trained manpower outruns the supply while it is hard to use lower aptitude men. Recent advances in training technology should, if implemented, help to solve training and manpower problems. Major directions indicated by military research in this area include (1) improved methods for describing required human performance outputs and for deriving training content, (2) better design of informational job aids, and (3) new techniques and devices for guiding the learning process.
