Abstract:

The manufacturers of commercial transport aircraft are aware of the special responsibilities and caution needed to assure a safe aircraft design. The technical approach for this contract has emphasized established scientific methodology and practical application of methods in the selection of workload measures for aircraft certification. A step-by-step procedure has been used for identifying candidate workload measures and then confirming the validity, reliability, and applicability of the candidates by means of rigorous aircraft simulation testing. The procedures used have enabled quantitative descriptions to be made of the statistical validity and reliability of the workload measures employed in testing to date. Proceeding of a two day workshop to review the results of a part-task simulation program to determine the validity, reliability and applicability of candidate workload measurement techniques intended for use during aircraft certification.
