Abstract:

This research note summarizes three years of a four year contract to study ways of improving human performance in highly integrated systems in such areas as communications, transportation, manufacturing, etc. Rule-based computer models of human performance CAIN are discussed, as are methods form measuring the complexity of the task of monitoring these large-scale systems. Finally, the development of a computer model MABEL which requires subjects to monitor a large-scale communications network is described.
