Abstract
THIS PROJECT WILL DESIGN AND DEVELOP PROTOTYPE COMPUTER-BASED MODEL OF ARMY PLANNING AND DECISION-MAKING WHICH EMPLOYS A MENTAL MODEL AS THE KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATION SCHEME. MENTAL MODELS AND OTHER RELEVANT COGNITIVE STRUCTURES ARE NATURAL AND BASIC INTERFACES OR TEMPLATES FOR PERCEPTION AND COGNITION. COMPUTER-BASED MENTAL MODELS CAN SERVE AS INTERFACE TOOLS FOR COMPUTER-BASED PROBLEMSOLVING DESIGNED TO ACHIEVE GENUINE HUMAN-COMPUTER PARTNERSHIPS. THE PROJECT WILL INVOLVE THE CONSTRUCTION OF A TYPOLOGY OF MILITARY PROGRAM-SOLVING COGNITIVE STRUCTURES, THE DESIGN OF A PROTOTYPE "STORYBOARD", THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE RAPID PROTOTYPING STRATEGY TO SYSTEMS DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT, AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF A GRAPHIC INTELLIGENT INTERFACE--BASED ON THE MENTAL MODEL--TO INTERACTIVE SYSTEMS USE. IN ADDITION TO THE DELIVERY OF THE STORYBOARD FOR A KNOWLEDGE-BASED SYSTEM IN A PROBLEM DOMAIN RELEVANT TO BRL, THE PROJECT WILL ALSO PRODUCE AN INTEGRATED RESEARCH DESIGN FOR FUTURE INQUIRY INTO METAL MODELS AND KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATION.
