Abstract:

Cogwheel is a 30-minute sound film that shows a 40-man Air Force crew operating an air-defense direction center in the Systems Research Laboratory at The RAND Corporation. It traces the development of the Cogwheel crew as an organization, illustrates the complexities of direction-center operations, brings out some of the problems of studying systems in a laboratory, and demonstrates the realism in human behavior and environment building that can be attained in laboratory studies of this kind.
