Abstract:

Over 400 references relating to operator mental workload were selected and classified according to a two-dimensional scheme including workload methodology and universal operator behavior. Twenty-eight specific techniques of assessing workload by means of subjective opinions, spare mental capacity, primary task, and physiological measures were cataloged. This catalog summarizes critical criteria that need to be considered in the flight test and evalaution environment and describes each technique in terms of theory and background, description of necessary methodapparatus, area of application and example, limitations, and suggested RDT and E follow-ups.
