Abstract:

A SYSTEMS APPROACH IS PRESENTED FOR DEVELOPMENT AND EMPIRICAL VALIDATION OF A HUMAN OPERATOR MODEL FOR SYSTEM EVALUATION (HOMSE). A PLAN IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP HOMSE PRIMARILY FROM EXISTING TECHNIQUES AND COMPONENTS IN THE DOMAIN OF HUMAN PERFORMANCE MODELS. THE MODEL WILL BE DESIGNED TO PREDICT THE EFFECTS OF INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES IN THE PERCEPTUAL-MOTOR-COGNITIVE PERFORMANCE OF HUMAN OPERTORS USING ARMY SYSTEMS. THE PURPOSE OF THE MODEL IS TO PROVIDE AID IN EVALUATING SYSTEM DESIGN CONCEPTS EARLY IN SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT. THE MODEL WILL BE CALIBRATED TO THE EMPIRICAL PERFORMANCE DATA AVAILABLE IN ARI'S PROJECT A. A VALIDATION PLAN FOR HOMSE IS PROPOSED, CONSISTING PRINCIPALLY OF COMPARING MODEL PREDICTIONS GENERATED BY HOMSE USERS WITH SIMILAR PREDICTIONS OBTAINED FROM OBJECTIVE PERFORMANCE DATA AND FROM THE SUBJECTIVE ESTIMATES OF EXPERTS.
