Abstract:

All three military services are developing automated human performance measurement systems fore aviation training devices and research on human performance. The purpose of this study was to create a set of aircrew-system performance measurement guidelines for research based on a review of current practice, and the measurement experience and technical judgement of the investigators. A subjective analysis of common measurement requirements among flight tasks for all phases of military aviation was conducted. The selection of system state variables would be dictated by the individual research problem, but guidelines for sampling, measure segmentation, and selection of transforms to create measurement were developed for common flight tasks and measurement problems. Performance measurement issues in system design, training, and automated performance measurement system design were discussed. FORTRAN program listings for common transforms and specialized multivariate data analyses for selecting and constructing measurement from empirical data were appended. Use of the illustrated techniques was recommended, as was the need to update these techniques as measurement experience accrues. Keywords Performance Measurement, Segmentation Logic, Transformations.
