HUMAN FACTORS RESEARCH IN COMMAND INFORMATION PROCESSING SYSTEMS-- SUMMARY OF RECENT STUDIES
Technical research rept.
ARMY BEHAVOIR AND SYSTEMS RESEARCH LAB ARLINGTON VA
Pagination or Media Count:
The research is directed toward solving problems associated with information processing and decision making by commanders and their staffs. It focuses on one or more aspects of events which occur from the time a commander receives his mission until he completes it. This chain of events is the system within which command decisions are formulated and executed--a tactical operations system within which tactical information processing is performed. Human information processing and decision making may be observed on an abstract level in the laboratory or as operational procedures in the field. To provide a research capability responsive to requirements for varying degrees of operational simulation, the Command Systems program has established both laboratory and field approaches.
