Abstract : The purpose of the study was to identify specific inadequacies in aircraft maintenance manuals and to recommend ways and means for their correction. To this end, avionics maintenance technicians were sampled by questionnaires and interviews, and representative aircraft maintenance manuals were critically analyzed. Respondents were questioned concerning information requirements and were asked to comment on the physical characteristics of the handbooks. Specific problem areas dealt with such factors as format, organization, graphics, readability, level of explanation, utilization procedures, and revision problems, The report contains an overview of the project analysis and specific statements of existing problems as identified by user views with accompanying analyses and recommendations.
