Abstract:

ALONG WITH TREMENDOUS ADVANCES IN THE TECHNOLOGY SUPPORTING GRAPHICAL AND HEADS-UP DISPLAYS COMES A DIZZYING ARRAY OF OPTIONS FOR THE DISPLAY OF COMPLEX STATIC AND DYNAMIC INFORMATION TO PILOTS IN MODERN AIRCRAFT. TO DATE, RESEARCH ON THE EFFECTIVENESS OF GRAPHICAL DISPLAY FORMATS AS AIDS TO DECISION-MAKING AND MONITORING HAS BEEN LARGELY EQUIVOCAL (JARVENPAA AND DICKSON, 1988) (SANDERSON, FLACK, BUTTIGIEG AND CASEY, 1988). THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM IS ROOTED IN LACK OF BASIC THEORY IN MATCHING DISPLAY FORMATS (AND PRESENTATION METHODS) TO TASK INFORMATION REQUIREMENTS (CARSWELL AND WICKENS, 1987) (FREY, SIDES, HUNT, AND ROUSE, 1984). TO ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM WE WILL DEVELOP A THEORY-BASED APPROACH TO COCKPIT (AND OTHER) DISPLAY DESIGN, WILL DEFINE A RAPID-PROTOTYPING BASED DISPLAY CONSTRUCTION AND EVALUATION METHODOLOGY, AND WILL SUPPORT THIS METHODOLOGY WITH A KNOWLEDGE-BASED SOFTWARE ENVIRONMENT.
