Abstract:

A series of human operator-system interdependencies is presented in the form of tradeoff curves. These curves were derived from computer simulation of a representative Navy mission. Performance at four work stations was simulated. The resulting tradeoff curves present the relative impact of human oriented variables on system performance. Such curves possess merit as an aid to the equipment system designers who possess an interest in improving both overall system reliability, maintainability, and availability. Author
