Abstract : The STEAMER computer-based propulsion engineering training system was installed at the Surface Warfare Officers School in Newport, R.I. and made available for use by Propulsion Plant Trainer (PPT) instructors. The instructors felt that the STEAMER system could make a valuable contribution to propulsion training and suggested many potential uses for the system in support of training. Also, observations of their use of STEAMER revealed a number of ways in which the user interface could be improved. The results of this evaluation are being incorporated into the STEAMER development process and a subsequent evaluation period involving both students and instructors is being planned. (Author)
