Abstract
CREWSTATION DISPLAYS ARE BECOMING INCREASINGLY COMPLEX AS USER INTERFACE TECHNOLOGIES ADVANCE. THIS COMPLEXITY AND THE RECENT EMPHASIS ON HUMAN FACTORS AND INCREASED CREW WORKLOADS, HAS COMPLICATED THE PROCESS OF PRESENTING INFORMATION IN THE MOST USABLE FORM. CENTURY COMPUTING PROPOSES TO INVESTIGATE THE CURRENT STATE OF USER INTERFACE TECHNOLOGY. THIS INVESTIGATION WILL INCLUDE A REVIEW OF USER INTERFACE METHODS AND GRAPHICS DISPLAY CAPABILITIES. CENTURY WILL SPECIFY THREE ALTERNATIVE USER INTERFACE CONCEPTS FOR A SYSTEM THAT WILL ENABLE CREWSTATION DISPLAY ENGINEERS TO RAPIDLY CREATE AND MODIFY CREWSTATION DISPLAYS. WITH THIS SYSTEM, GRAPHICS OBJECTS CAN BE ASSOCIATED WITH DYNAMIC ATTRIBUTES THAT REPRESENT COCKPIT DISPLAYS, AND CAN BE CONNECTED TO REALTIME SIMULATION DATA THAT VARIES AS A FUNCTION OF TIME. A MAJOR GOAL IS TO SPECIFY A SYSTEM THAT MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO DESIGN AND EVALUATE COCKPIT AND DISPLAYS WITHIN ONE DAY.
