Abstract:

The study was conducted in an attempt to meet the Navys need for improved methods of assigning functions to men, machines, or manmachine combinations in new systems under development. Rapid development of Navy technology has increased the opportunity to automate functions and tasks traditionally performed by humans. Although system reliability is often increased by automation, the cost is frequently also increased. Faced with definite mission requirements and limited financial resources, the Navy must select those function allocation alternatives which optimize costeffectiveness during the lifetime of the system.
