Abstract : The taks of maintaining complex military hardware in the field has become a major problem facing all the military services. Contributing to this problem are the mass of highly Technical and instructionally inadequate manuals and the low reading ability and inexperience of many military technicians. Solutions have been attempted in several areas, mostly at high cost and with little success. One promising solution appears to be the use of computer-based job-aids for the technician in the field. One such system is NOMAD (Navy On-board Maintenance Aiding Device), a prototype computer-based job-aid developed by Hazeltine Corporation's TICCIT division and U.S. Navy personnel for ship-board maintenance of the Navy's MK-86 fire-control system. NOMAD has proved very successful in its initial tryout.
