Abstract:

An experiment is conducted to determine if the Operation Sequence Diagram OSD Technique, which is primarily a human factors tool, could be adapted as a planning, monitoring and control device in the area of resource planning. While experimentation in adapting the OSD to a planning system scenario utilized actual data, it has not been validated in a truly operational environment. Technology advancements in the field of automation interactive computer graphics are utilized and it appears that significant improvements to systems understanding can be realized through further exploitation of the automated interactive OSD approach.
