Abstract : New technology is changing the way we train people. The Director of Naval Training (N7) has stated that the Navy needs to incorporate more of this new technology into its training environments. To achieve this goal, the training community must meet several challenges. N7 asked CNA for help in structuring a cost-benefit analysis of training technology. It wanted CNA to develop a methodology for analyzing and evaluating the potential benefits that new technologies can bring to Navy training. N7 stated that the methodology should define quantitative measures for assessing the benefits, specify mathematical relationships and procedures for computing these measures, and identify the data to be collected.
