The purpose of this study was to examine the development, evaluation, and testing of a technical manual produced by the new United States Army Improved Technical Documentation and Training concept. The concept involved a complete systems analysis of the hardware being considered prior to the actual writing of the manual. The manuals were validated and verified by actual soldiers performing maintenance tasks using only the manuals.
A comparison of the new manual with the old manual was Performed using untrained and trained soldiers.
Conclusions formulated were that the new manual seemed to be a great improvement over the old manual and may assist in improving the present maintenance system.
