Abstract : A model for an integrated system used for job aiding, training, and performance assessment is presented. The model is driven by updatable job aids, by integrated man machine heuristics, and by an expanding matrix of maintenance activities. The model uses the job-aiding base, updated by computer networks and retrieval systems. In the model, this job aiding system is part of an expert system. All inputs and outputs are envisioned to be in natural, human, languages presented in a user friendly series of displays and menus. The model also provides for training and performance assessment. To create training modules, the computer subsystem implements the appropriate job aid by presenting it in a training frame. To create training modules, the computer subsystem implements the appropriate job aid by presenting it in a training frame. To create a performance assessment battery, the computer subsystem presents the job aid after filtering it through a linguistic transformation which turns it into a case study or, if appropriate, a series of questions. Keywords: Artificial intelligence, Expert systems, Heuristic problem solving, Integrated diagnostics.
