Abstract : Presently, no set has been developed which assesses all variables involved in deriving training device requirements. While the Instructional Systems Development (ISD) process provides useful information for deriving requirements for those aspects of the trainer which are specific to aircraft configuration, it provides insufficient information for deriving best method of simulation and instructional feature requirements. The Systems Engineering Process, on the other hand, is a generic guide and does not consider training variables. If these processes are used concurrently, two separate data bases - one training-related, one engineering-related - will evolve without any seeming correlation. By adding research design, the effect of the training device design upon training effectiveness can be assessed. By collecting the needed data based upon individual feature characteristics, rather than implementing a single process or set of algorithms to derive all feature requirements, the training equipment contractor can develop equipment maximizing training and cost-effectiveness.
