Abstract:

The symposium was organized to bring together a group of engineers and scientists from many sections of the country who have been actively investigating the relationship of human operators to the effectiveness of complex manmachine systems. The specific objectives of the symposium were to review and evaluate current and proposed methods for quantifying mans role in the performance of complex manmachine systems. acquaint the engineering community and particularly scientists and engineers within the Navy with the problems and payoffs related to quantification of human performance in Navy systems. develop a set of recommendations for application by the Naval Material Command and other engineering development organizations to ensure consideration, during all phases of system development, of human contribution to system performance effectiveness. These objectives have been attained through the efforts of those who have conducted research and development activities and reported them here.
