Skill training for the production of a memorized movement pattern by United States( Book )

5 editions published between 1968 and 1969 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many skilled tasks require execution of a movement pattern directed toward a specific goal. However the individual performing the movement lacks information about how well he is doing until the movement pattern is completed; instantaneous error information is not available along the way. Although this kind of task has not frequently been studied in the laboratory, it is very common in practical situations. A golfer perfecting his swing, a pilot executing a procedural turn under VFR conditions, and an astronaut performing extra-vehicular maneuvers are typical examples. The question to be attacked in this report concerns the evaluation of several possible procedures for training human operators in the execution of this class of movement. Although some tasks of this sort are terminal control problems that are effectively path independent, in the examples cited there is a desirable temporal pattern for the entire movement that will converge on the terminal state relatively optimally. In the case of the movement to be studied here, it was assumed that such a desired temporal pattern did indeed exist and that the quality of performance could be measured by noting deviations from that desired pattern. The perspective of this research assumes that man may be regarded as an information processing system. He accepts information via his sensory organs; it is then suitably transformed by a central decision-making system to be translated into overt motor performance by a response or output system. Sensory input information may arrive from two sources. The environment can provide both command information; that is, information about the desired course of action; and feedback, information about the state of the system output at any point in time. This output information may be fed back via vision, audition, touch, proprioception, etc. If an operator is to learn, that is, to modify his behavior on the basis of previous stimulation, feedback about the state of the system output with respect to some desired goal is virtually essential. Although many other variables may contribute to the efficiency of training, without feedback, or knowledge of results, there can be no learning. This study examines the efficacy of several kinds of feedback information administered during a training period for improving performance at the task of generating a response pattern essentially from memory. After a brief review of definitions and concepts concerned with the regulation of feedback in Chapter 2, the subsequent chapters present the method, the results, and the discussion of the research that was undertaken."--Introduction

Critical review and analysis of performance models applicable to man-machine systems evaluation( Book )

4 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report focuses on the review of potentially relevant models and on the identification of issues in model development and application that may have an important impact on models for large-scale, man-machine systems. A detailed and critical evaluation of several classes of human-performance models is presented. Interrelations among existing models are examined and an evaluation is made on the needs and gaps in the technology. Modelling issues are identified and research recommendations indicated. Approximately forty models techniques that have some applicability to the simulation modelling program are abstracted in the Appendix. (Author)

Human perceptual-motor performance by Richard W Pew( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper presents a tutorial review of the current status of work on perceptual motor skills from the joint perspectives of information processing and feedback control. The organizing theme for the discussion is a multi-level conception of motor control involving (1) an elementary error-correction system; (2) higher level feedback and control functions describing how man responds to the predictable characteristics of input signals and (3) a schema based memory and response execution system for describing voluntary movement capacities. Elementary concepts of feedback control are introduced together with discussion of the role of feedback on performance, in tracking, and in voluntary movement
Strategic Workload and the Cognitive Management of Advanced Multi-Task Systems by Marilyn Jager Adams( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Improved technology and automation are being advocated as the solution to problems of lagging productivity and human error. However, the very technology that is sought to improve productivity and reduce human crewmember's workload often has the opposite effect. An alternative is human-centered automation that aids and supports the human crewmember. To design it requires an expanded view of workload as a strategic task management problem, contrasted with the more traditional view of workload as competition for a limited pool of processing resources at any one time. We introduce a theoretical framework for understanding human cognitive processing that builds on active theories of perception, connectionist theories of associative knowledge structures, and schema theories of comprehension. The framework addresses mechanisms of attention, situation awareness, and real-time management of multiple streams of activity
Information Processing Models and Computer Aids for Human Performance. Task 2. Human-Computer Interaction Models( Book )

2 editions published between 1971 and 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A measuring system was implemented to obtain the statistical parameters necessary to specify a queueing theory model of the dynamic behavior of a state-of-the-art time-shared computer system, and present results on the statistics of usage of one such computer system. A methodology is presented for the performance of experiments involving human users and for the interpretation of their results. It is expected that these results will yield predictive models for the overall efficiency of the 'users-computer system' under various circumstances. (Author)

Agent-Based Modeling and Behavior Representation (AMBR)( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report documents accomplishments and lessons learned in a multi-year project to examine the ability of a range of integrative cognitive modeling architectures to predict human behavior in a common task environment. This Agent-Based Modeling and Behavior Representation (AMBR) project involved a series of human performance model evaluations in which the behavior of computer models could be compared to each other and to actual human operators performing the identical tasks. The first comparison challenged the modelers to build dynamically realistic human cognitive models of multiple task management and attention sharing, by simulating the behavior of an air traffic controller (ATC) operating in a simplified ATC task. The second comparison challenged the modelers to build computational process models that simulated the learning of new concepts in the context of executing the task and to make a priori predictions of human behavior in a transfer condition. This report consists of chanters of a forthcoming book, plus appendices detailing the AMBR methodology
