Abstract:

Male subjects were tested after extensive training as two five-man crews in an experiment designed to examine the effects of signal rate on the performance of a task involving the monitoring of a dynamic process. Performance was measured using three signal rates with several levels of workload induced by the simultaneous performance of different combinations of tasks involving reaction time, mental arithmetic, pattern discrimination, and group problem solving.
