Abstract:

This submission updates Volume II to the latest Acquisition Phase specification for Area Control Computer Complex ACCC, and includes corrections and improvements as necessary. This volume is one of a series of operations concepts for the FAAs Advanced Automation System AAS. It describes how terminal and en route controllers in the Area Control Facilities may perform their operational jobs in the full ACCC environment with AERA 1 capabilities. ACCC functionally is assumed to be as described in the AAS System Level Specification, 28 August 1987. Included here are Composition Graphs, showing the logical flow of operational tasks performed in response to or anticipation of external Air Traffic Events a series of analyses of these tasks, including Task Information Requirements, CognitiveSensory Attributes, and Performance Criteria a User Interface Language aggregating system input and output messages in a hierarchical organization a decomposition of tasks to their constituent procedural elements traceability between tasks and supporting ACCC functionally and sample operational scenarios for each position. Data presented here are generated and maintained using the Computer-Human Operational Requirements analysis System CHORAS. CHORAS includes an automated task database, specialized graphing capabilities, and display and hard copy output features tailored to the needs of operations concept analysis. Keywords Federal Aviation Administration FAA, Task analysis, Operational scenarios, Composition graphs, Man machine interface, Area control facility.
