Abstract : This thesis is an evaluation of the human resource development process supporting the Consolidated Automated Support System (CASS). The CASS Implementation Plan and related Navy Training Plan are established to deliver CASS hardware/software and a trained workforce to the fleet for system operation and maintenance throughout its life cycle. This study involves an overview of both plans, a definition of basic personnel development requirements for any weapons system, a review of historical ATE training deficiencies, and the current status of CASS technician training at the Naval Aviation Maintenance Training Group Detachments (NAMTRAGRUDETs). Its conclusions are that the plans collectively address the elements essential to develop a skilled workforce to support CASS throughout its life cycle. However, delivery delays of CASS Station hardware, Test Program Sets (TPSs), and a representative sample of various aircraft Weapons Repairable Assemblies (WRAs) and Shop Replaceable Assemblies (SRAs) pose problems that must be resolved before training can satisfy the majority of acquisition, fleet maintenance, and training management desires.
