Development of Computer-Based Training for Maintenance and Supply – Phase II

NCMS Project #: 140917

Problem: Most often training curriculum is written to train too much functionality at one time and to large segments of job roles at fixed times. The traditional model of instructor-led training in a classroom setting is both cost prohibitive due to travel expense and time away from the job. This problem is compounded by teaching too much material to the wrong employees or worse no training at all because it is too expensive.

Benefit: Just-in-Time Learning (JITL) can help learners visualize how something may work, show information that’s difficult to explain, and ultimately engages the learner through sight and sound, which can be more enjoyable and memorable thus leading to better learning outcomes. Decreased length of training, ease of access and a consistent message are just a few advantages of JITL on the American workforce.

Solution/Approach: During Phase II the extension of methods developed in Phase I will be completed and additional methods will be developed to manage two delivery problems:

  • Interim training needs during the upgrade to R12 and continuous development cycle.
  • Warehouse Management training to a geographically disperse user group.
