This paper discusses a conceptual model developed by the Bureau of Mines for evaluating the training and performance of underground equipment operators. The need for such a model is demonstrated by a review of the limitations of present industrial skills training and performance evaluation procedures, particularly as these relate to cost-justifying performance improvement strategies. A computer simulation program to profile the performance of underground shuttle car operators was developed. Implications are drawn for use of the simulation program as a practical diagnostic and prescriptive tool for structured on-the-job training, job design, supervision, and management policy. Current avenues of joint research with a cooperating coal company to apply and further develop the model are discussed.
