This thesis investigates the automated creation of operator study and self-test materials directly from standardized operating manuals. The targeted operating manual series is the Engineering Operational Sequencing System (EOSS) instructions. The developed software scans the standard Portable Document Format (PDF) versions of the manual, analyzes the contents, autonomously generates study and test materials, and prepares software feedback to help students and watchstanders study the required material more effectively. The entire process takes place in real-time and is based on standard Navy operating-document design patterns. The employed principles and techniques should be applicable to other types of procedural documents in the Navy and throughout the Department of Defense (DoD).
