Abstract : The paper, one of three prepared for a 1972 symposium, and its accompanying slides give an overview of the Air Force research and development program for the improvement of maintenance efficiency. It emphasizes the use of the task analysis process in all efforts. Although the central theme emphasizes the job performance aids efforts attention is also given to job oriented training and job task performance tests. The results of two experiments are briefly summarized. In addition, a 1972 demonstration combining job performance aids with job oriented training is described. In this demonstration eight high and eight average electronic aptitude subjects were able to perform most types of flight line and field shop maintenance for a doppler radar and its computer.
