Abstract
THIS PROJECT WILL PRODUCE A DECISION AID TO ASSIST SYSTEM DESIGNERS AND MISSION PLANNERS IN THE ALLOCATION OF SYSTEM FUNCTIONS TO HUMAN PERFORMANCE OR TO SOME DEGREE AUTOMATION. THE DECISION AID IS MADE UP OF: 1. A DATA BASE AND DATA CLASSIFICATION SCHEME; 2. AN EXPERT SYSTEM TO: A) INTEGRATE AND PRIORITIZE REQUIREMENTS DATA THAT WILL INFLUENCE THE ALLOCATION DECISION, B) ACTUALLY MAKE THE DECISION CONCERNING AN OPTIMAL ALLOCATION BASED ON MISSION REQUIREMENTS AND ALLOCATION RULES, AND C) PROVIDE GUIDELINES ON THE STRONG AND WEAK POINTS OF ALTERNATIVE ALLOCATION STRATEGIES; AND 3. A SIMULATION MODEL TO EXERCISE A TASK SEQUENCE UNDER A SELECTED ALLOCATION STRATEGY.
