Pagination or Media Count:
The goal of this SBIR Phase II was to formalize and evaluate a new method of knowledge elicitation, the Critical Decision Method CDM. A number of studies were conducted using the CDM, and a formal rationale, description, and set of guidelines was developed. Additional work demonstrated the reliability of the method. The CDM was shown to be applicable in Army command-and- control settings. Additional knowledge elicitation methods were developed for team decision making during command-and-control training exercises and for tha evaluation of decision support systems. Taken together, the projects performed under this contract exemplify a new discipline of cognitive engineering. They provide a set of methodologies for eliciting and codifying expert domain knowledge to generate systems that improve decision making.
