Abstract:

Improving human systems integration through technologically advanced training and performance aids has become increasingly important to military transformation. Measures of improved cognitive and coordination processes arising from the employment of transformational tools are necessary to guide the refinement and future development of such technologies. In this paper we describe a Cognitive Load Theory approach to developing a combinatory measure of individual workload and team performance following an experimental intervention involving training and a Decision Support System. We discuss how indicators of what we term team decision efficiency can improve assessing the effectiveness of transformational processes and technologies.
