Abstract:

This technical information series TIS outlines a procedure for developing instructions and training materials for control panel operation and indicator and display interpretation. The method is particularly advantageous when the operator has to observe and respond to large amounts of data and manipulate many controls. The process is described in this TIS as it is applied to the preparation of information for the tactical towed array sonar TACTAS System Operators Manual. However, it can be applied with slight modification to systems having similarly complex man-machine interfaces. Data input, storage, processing, and output are performed by the time-share subsystem TSS of the Honeywell 520 Data Processing System level 66.
