The human reliability data Data Store, An Index of Electronic Equipment Operability derived by the American Institute for Research was used to select, modify, or construct 11 indicators and controls. These indicators and controls were assembled into two panels representing the best and worst reliability figures that could be utilized. To produce realistic operational panels, little reliability difference could be made in the dimensions. The panel equipment, through a tally tape reader, was operated to simulate an aircraft flight profile from take-off to level-off. A checklist was devised varying response control indicator relationships. Trained subjects performed discrete actions in response to indications of airspeed, altitude, and vertical velocity. Their response was recorded and observed. To minimize equipment variability for higher reliability tasks, redundant error recording and interpretation was performed.
