Abstract:

SPAWAR Systems Center Pacific SSC Pacific has developed prototype combat systems. The method of evaluating design alternatives for these prototypes is through an iterative cycle of design, build, and test. This approach has several drawbacks. For example, design information that is critical to support cognitive and perceptual processes in the task domain is not explicitly captured by the design process, but rather is implicitly embodied in the final design. To overcome the problems of this approach, SSC Pacific has explored the feasibility of a model-based approach to system design. This report reviews several models that may be suited to predict early design usability testing.
