    A computer-based management information system consists of two major components: the machine and the human user. The designers of these systems often do not consider the capabilities and inadequacies of the human component. As a consequence, the computer with its vast information processing abilities tends to overload the human user. This leads to a waste of computing resources and interferes with...

    Over the past ten years we have witnessed a transformation in the computer-based problem-solving process. In the early 1970' s computer-based information, decision, forecasting, and evaluation software systems were clumsy, barely interactive, and generally resident on relatively inaccessible macrocomputer mainframes. By the mid-1970' s significant progress had been made via the use of minicomputer... View full abstract»

    The current information revolution and the growing pervasiveness of computers are raising anew fundamental questions about allocation of functions between humans and machines. Underlying the issues involved is the central fact, too often overlooked by system designers, that computers cannot take responsibility for what they do. A review of the problems and techniques associated with introducing co... View full abstract»

    Situation assessment tasks, e.g., medical diagnosis, battlefield reading, corporation status assessment for merger or acquisition purposes, are formulated as a general family of problem solving tasks. The generic nature of this family task as a multimembership hierarchical pattern recognition problem is characterized and the types of decision support systems (DSS) are identified. The focus is on k... View full abstract»

    An experiment was performed to evaluate the usefulness of an option for users of an automated information system to construct their own preferred formats for receiving intelligence messages. It was hypothesized that such an option would enhance the acquisition and comprehension of intelligence data from each message. The results indicated that users who personalized the format arranged the message... View full abstract»

    The objective of this research was to identify and apply experimental techniques for locating and evaluating data patterns and informational "chunks" which are meaningful to the tactical decisionmaker in this decisionmaking tasks. The identification of meaningful chunks of information is useful in specifying criteria for the development of decision-aiding algorithms that search for, classify, and ... View full abstract»

    A trainable model of the human operator in information acquisition tasks is described. The purpose of this model, called the adaptive information selector (AIS), is to select and present textual messages automatically to users in computer-based tactical systems. AIS algorithms, which control and present messages in order of priority in real time, are based on multiattribute characterization of tac... View full abstract»

    A procedure for the interactive computer-aided control synthesis of manipulators is presented. The procedure is based on an approach to control synthesis in which the dynamics of the system are taken into account, but the resulting control law is simple and applicable. All phases of the procedure are briefly described. At each step of the control synthesis, interaction with the user is emphasized ... View full abstract»

    A position control stick with one hand and a velocity control stick with the other hand were manipulated in order to capture a moving target displayed on an oscilloscope screen. The two control sticks were additively coupled. In order to understand the coordination of the two control sticks, event-based first-order Markov "activity sequence generators" were constructed for individual subjects. The... View full abstract»

    A new, exact formulation for the reliability index of mean frequency of system failure is developed which is particularly suitable for application to large-scale systems. This approach has advantages over other available methods in that it requires neither the analysis of each system state nor the identification of all system cut-sets. Reliability evaluation is achieved by decomposing the system s... View full abstract»
