For Reference Only At Bureau Libraries :64 pages
This report describes the major technical activities that were accomplished to produce a comprehensive continuous miner training system (cmts) for coal industry utilization. The primary product of this program was a continuous miner part-task trainer. It is composed of an interactive computer grapics system combined with the operating controls of a continuous mining machine mounted in a simulated cab. The cab contains an audio system for reproducing continuous miner operational sounds. The trainer is supplemented with a complete set of cognitive materials that provide instruction in the operation, safety, and health of continuous miner operations. A complete summary of the field test and evaluation of the cmts is provided along with recommendations for further training program refinements, expansions, and utilization.
