Abstract:

This paper presents a method for designing the physical layout of a command center to best support team performance, based on the communication and information structure of the team. The command center design method is based on an optimized team design model that produces the best team structure for a specific mission. Using information about the teams communication patterns and information needs, we apply model-based principles to evaluate candidate designs for the physical layout of the command center and to develop designs best suited to the team structure.
