This paper presents the concept of articulation of operational and training materials. It is based on the results of the ArtiFACT project ( Arti culation of F COM, C ourseware and T raining.) On the one hand, operational materials are progressively shifting from paper to electronic support. Both user needs and electronic possibilities guide the subsequent transformation. Training materials are available on electronic support for a long time. Thus, it is obviously interesting to transfer training experience in the design and development of electronic support to current operational needs. On the other hand, training has progressively become performance support over the years, i.e., initial training largely continues during operations and needs to be supported consequently. Articulating operational and training materials benefits to both sectors of activity.
