Development of Computer-Based Training Technologies for Maintenance and Sustainment – Phase III

NCMS Project #: 140974

Problem: By implementing a Just-In-Time Learning (JITL) model available online 24/7, high quality training, specifically tailored to smaller segments of job tasks, becomes a viable delivery model that is less expensive than relying solely on classroom training and is more available to the system users. A reusable methodology and training model that can be provided to the military as well as industry will create a better trained workforce that is more effective.

Benefit: The general public can benefit in many direct and indirect ways from JITL as applied to logistics, inventory and maintenance operations. New techniques, improved processes, and enhanced safety issues will make a huge impact on vital equipment and other important assets whether in industry or the military.

Solution/Approach: Phase III will build on the successes of Phases I & II and continue to develop and demonstrate new sustainment initiatives for new GCSS-MD/LCM functionality. The overall objective of Phase III is to establish the sustainment routines and methodology from previous stage development and continue to develop and demonstrate new sustainment initiatives for new GCSS-MC/LCM functionality. This will include Warehouse Management, Logistics Command and Systems Command training while sustaining the core curriculum for the GCSS-MC/LCM Supply and Maintenance functions. Phase III will enhance the delivery of training and learning management by introducing new learning management system technology and delivery technology.
