Abstract:

A multiphased study effort was conducted to lead to the development of methods for determining the components and measuring the effects of advances in technology on human resources in Air Force weapon systems. A first phase of the effort involved the conduct of an analysis of the literature to review the status of forecasting and assessing technology and of techniques for predicting the impact of technology on human resource parameters AFHRL-TR-74-71. The second phase involved the development of Design Option Decision Trees DODT for two areas of Air Force systems technology Digital Avionics Information System and Remotely Piloted Vehicle Systems. The third phase called for the development of unique methods or synthesis of existing techniques to result in a new method for measuring the effects of technology on Air Force human resources. The fourth phase involved application of the method developed under phase three. The fifth and last phase entailed making an evaluation of the usefulness of the method to system designers and planners. A method integrating the DODT with a modification of the method of summated ratings was developed to arrive at a quantification of human resource effects of technological innovations. This procedure was applied to the Digital Avionics Information System DODT to provide source data for the evaluation of the developed method. The DODTs developed for the RPV system are presented in this volume.
