The flight training process is conceptualized using a systems approach and a framework for developing cost-effective training programs is presented. Using this approach, an expert decision support system for the optimal design of instructor/operator stations (IOSs) in flight simulators was developed. The system enables a designer to evaluate various IOS design configurations and choose a cost-effective configuration for implementation. The system encapsulates the knowledge on the design problem, its parameter, and the associated data assessed from a group of experts in flight simulation. The system was implemented on an IBM PC/AT and field tested with a group of design engineers. Their overall response to this system has been very favorable. Covered are the design approach, a taxonomy of the design parameters, the optimization model, and the system characteristics. Avenues of future investigation identified from this study are noted
