Abstract : This is the first Air Force report that focuses directly on the utilization of people-related research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT&E). Inputs associated with the several research projects described in this report were based on first-hand evaluations by Air Force operational commands and agencies. No effort was made to include all Air Force human resources research and development activities; rather, emphasis was placed on a representive sample of significant research utilization that resulted in both cost benefit and operational effectiveness. This report contains relevant information on the need, solution, application, and payoff of 18 different research efforts. In most cases, the development from initial problem formation through final product application has been explained. Four broad research categories are covered: Manpower and Personnel, Education and Training, Human Factors, and Simulation and Training Devices. (Author)
