Abstract : This is the third volume of a series dealing with human performance in continuous operations. This volume documents the technical procedures used to analyze adverse effects and to project diminished human performance capabilities during continuous operations, as described in Volumes I and II of this series. Specifically, the present volume (Volume III of the set): (1) depicts the technical aspects of the development of the prior two volumes, (2) updates a prior survey of the literature concerning the effects of continuous operations on military performance, (3) describes the methods for deriving 'critical' tasks included in Volume I, (4) describes the details of the mathematical procedures employed in Volume I to calculate and compound projected performance effectiveness, and (5) describes the details of a computer simulation model, which incorporates human effects, for simulating human performance in continuous operations.
