d. After assembling all the required material and preparing the flight profiles
or flight scenarios and descriptions of the tactical situation, an AMI, demo, auto-
fly, or TEE worksheet should be prepared. After completing the appropriate work-
s h e e t ( s ) , the data is ready to be entered for the selected exercise or demo.
Descriptions, instruction models, and worksheets for the preparation of each type
of automated program are provided in the following sections.
7-59. AMI PREPARATION. The purpose of the AMI preparation feature is to permit
AMI exercises to be prepared by selecting a set of malfunctions to be simulated
during a subsequent training period and the identifying contingencies, which, if
met during that period, will trigger the insertion of each of the selected malfunc-
tions. Up to three contingencies (parameters) may be required to activate the
appropriate malfunction. There is computer space for preparation and storage of 15
sets of AMI exercises in the CMS, while up to 10 malfunctions can be selected for
each AMI exercise.
a. In conjunction with the development of the scenarios, the IC set to be used
with each scenario should be identified. This is important because using a speci-
fied IC set with a particular AMI exercise provides an additional degree of stand-
ardization for the planned malfunction instruction and places the simulated
aircraft in an initial position most likely to trigger the AMI.
b. When CRT page 920 is keyed in via the data entry keyboard, the main page area
contains a blank AMI set page (figure 7-67) that is filled in during the prepara-
tion process and then stored in group 2 (MALFUNCTIONS, CRT pages 201 through 215)
for recall during subsequent training periods. The data from the AMI worksheet
should be entered
on the appropriate lines
on CRT page
index and control area (figure 7-67) includes the AMI PREP IDENTIFIERS with refer-
ence numbers (REF #) for the PARAMETERS, OPERATORS, and CORRECTORS that are re-
quired for entry on the CRT page.
c. Line 01 AMI PREP (main page area, figure 7-67) is used to enter the identi-
fying set number for the AMI set. When these sets are completed and stored, they
appear in the malfunctions index (CRT page 200). and each has a discrete page
number. CRT pages 201 through 215 correspond to AMI sets 1-15, respectively.
d. On CRT page 920, there are four lines of data for each malfunction. The
first line for each malfunction (lines 02, 06, 10, 14, 18, 22, 26, 30, 34, and 38)
is used to key in the selected 5-digit malfunction numbers for the set being pre-
pared. The indented line numbers (03, 04. 05; 07, 08, 09; etc.) are for insertion
of the contingencies that will trigger the malfunction. Up to three contingencies
can be entered for each malfunction. Each contingency line accommodates one para-
meter, one operator, and one connector, as required to define the triggering
(The contingencies are further explained in subparagraph f).
e. Command line 77 is used to clear the display and, when keyed in, clears all
data items entered. When an AMI prep is complete, keying command line 88 places
the data displayed on CRT page 920 in permanent storage in the malfunction grouping
where it is available for recall by its CRT page number (201 through 215). Command
line 99 is used to terminate (cancel) the preparation activity: nothing is retained
in storage when line 99 is keyed in.
