The aviation industry depends heavily on the high-reliability of its equipment and human performers. One method used to assist human performance has been the job performance aid. Traditionally job performance aids were only considered repositories for information and substitutes for training. Today, however, job performance aids have taken on a new role that includes aiding the human information process. Consequently, it was determined that an effective job performance aid design model would be beneficial to those responsible for job performance aid design. This article presents an overview of a study that incorporated principles from the fields of instructional technology and aviation human factors, which identified variables that affected job performance aid design and pinpointed design activities necessary for effectiveness.
