This report summarizes and integrates three other Technical Reports, each of which plays a role in a procedure intended to determine the human behavioral requirements of complex training devices. These reports are WADC Technical Reports 53-l36, Handbook on Training and Training Equipment Design; 53-137, A Method for Man-Machine Task Analysis; 53-138 Human Engineering Design Schedule for Training Equipment. It is intended that the procedures described in these reports will help bring to bear, in a systematic way, the contributions of psychology and psychologists to the design of training devices and their optimal use. The following two phases which constitute the procedure are summarized: a method for performing a behavioral analysis of man machine tasks; the application of a human engineering design schedule to the planning or improvement of a training device. A brief description is given of the Handbook on Training and Training Equipment Design and its applicability to the procedures described above. These materials and procedures are designed for use by trained personnel in the preparation of recommendations concerning the design and use of complex training devices.
