Abstract:

Designers decision making in specifying adaptive aiding systems is considered. A study of design decisions in specifying aiding for a fighter aircraft mission scenario is discussed. The requisite background knowledge required for the design of aiding systems and inherent complexity of situations to which adaptive aiding is applicable is quite broad. Considering these facts, the initial analysis of aiding designers decision processes focused on identification and validation of solutions currently used in the design process. Results indicate a high degree of consistency on the part of individual designers. However, there were substantial variations among designers in terms of both decisions made and information used to make the decisions. The implications of these results for development of design tools, as well as the types of research studies whose results would be valued by designers, are considered.... Adaptive aiding, Intervention criteria factors affecting system specification design decision, Attributes design of adaptive automation systems.
