Abstract : The rapid proliferation of microcomputer based systems for uses ranging from administrative support through operations aids has led to interest in consolidation of requirements to facilitate acquisition, logistics, and maintenance. This paper considers the feasibility of a common system designed especially for training applications. This common computer based training (CBT) system would be of modular design, this making it adaptable to specific user requirements. An approach similar to the Z-150 acquisition is recommended, providing a means for speeding system acquisition without levying the requirement that it be the only system to be used. The advantages and disadvantages of such an approach are considered, along with recommendations concerning some of the capabilities and options to be included in its design. Keywords: (CAUI)Computer-assisted instruction, (CBI)Computer-based instruction, (CMI)Computer-managed instruction, Computer proliferation, Part-task training.
