Abstract:

The goals at the research are the determination of optimal or near optimal workrest schedules for individuals and crews to yield high performance with minimal decrement over time followed by recovery after rest to an acceptable high performance. The experimentation is further aimed at consideration of various task levels and differing conditions of environment. Experimentation in progress continues to focus attention on the assessment of human performance under continuous operations or relatively long term activity 2 hours or more of activity. Effects of circadian rhythms on performance will also be studied in connection with this project.
