Abstract : The benefits associated with combat crew readiness are obvious. What may not be so obvious are the benefits associated with timely acquisition and availability of training and training devices. As new aircraft programs develop and present aircraft programs mature, the crews must either train on the operational equipment or wait until the associated trainers are developed or updated. If the trainers are developed and updated in concert with the aircraft program, the Air Force is provided not only with combat-ready crews at the correct time, but also at the correct cost. The key to keeping the training devices in concert with the aircraft is Concurrency Program. On the B-1B program, a complete concurrency program is being addressed. By complete, it is meant a program which addresses the two major issues associated with keeping the trainer concurrent with the aircraft. 1. Cost-effective development and distribution of the required design criteria data. 2. Inherent flexibility designed into the training device to accommodate changes in a cost-effective manner.
