Abstract:

This report covers the 18-month contract period during which time CSERIAC served as a beta site for setting up, evaluating and managing the Boeing-developed CAT software tools, and for facilitating their use by the cockpit design community. A brief description of the overall task is given, followed by a chronological summary of accomplishments within subject areas of general management, configuration control, development of proficiency and training, technology transfer, the library of documentation, and a related effort -- the AAMRLHEG CAT Library and Database. The longest section is a detailed critique and evaluation of the CAT Methodology and the software tools. Finally, recommendations vis-a-vis equipment needs, technical personnel and management, and technology transfer and training are listed. Two significant documents are provided in entirety as appendices The configuration Control Plan, and a template form of the Procedures Notebook which guides the user through the analyses processes linked by the Methodology and served by the software tools.
