Abstract : This study provides supply managers with an alternate method of augmenting Naval aviation storekeeper training to improve supply support management at operating sites. A microcomputer-based computer-assisted instruction system was developed which has much broader and significant application. The system can be used in any subject area to develop, administer, and monitor training and is applicable to all Navy, Air Force, Army and other Department of Defense components. The potential for cost savings and improved operational capability through the use of this system is unlimited. The system consists of two computer programs written in the BASIC programming language, program documentation, and a user's guide for the system. The system requires a minimum of computer operation knowledge but provides courseware of high quality and flexibility. The system was developed in a Radio Shack, TRS 80, Model 4 microcomputer and converted to operate on a Zenith Z-248, IBM-AT/PC compatible microcomputer.
