The primary objective of training design is to assemble learning objectives (teaching points) in courses, and identify the most cost effective venue for the delivery of training by identifying viable delivery options (media analysis); estimating the development time; forecasting and comparing budget and resources; assessing the risks; and identifying the most cost effective options. Read Guide.
Preliminary & Detailed Media and Cost Analysis – Step by Step Guides. Two approaches are outlined in the step-by-step guide: preliminary and detailed analysis. For each approach, step-by-step instructions are presented on how to identify the most effective delivery option for each learning objective (teaching point); how to forecast and compare the costs of viable delivery options; how to select the right blend of delivery options; and how to generate business case to support recommendations. Read Preliminary Media Analysis Guide. Read Detailed Media Analysis Guide.
Fidelity Analysis User Guide. The primary objective of fidelity analysis is to identify the fidelity requirements of trainers and simulators by assessing visual, tactile, olfactory, affective and auditory sensory cues required by performance, enabling and learning objectives; defining the synthetic environment in which trainers/simulators will operate; as well as various elements that users are expected to interact with. Read Guide.
Tasked Based and Activity Based Fidelity Analysis – Step by Step Guides. Two approaches are outlined in the step-by-step guide: job based and course based analysis. For each approach, step-by-step instructions are presented on how to setup a project, training devices, jobs and courses; how to identify relevant objectives; how to assess sensory cues requirements for main system and components; how to define synthetic environment and elements; and how to generate system requirements report. Read Task Based Fidelity Analysis Guide. Read Activity Based Fidelity Analysis Guide.
Resource Management User Guide. The primary objective of resource management is to forecast personnel, equipment, facilities and budget requirements for any time period, based on planned training activities. In addition, training impact is maximized by uncovering training duplication (similar objectives within multiple courses); and revealing training creep (activities that are no longer aligned with operational/business requirements), cost drivers, personnel/resources utilization rates and so forth. Read Guide.
