The elaboration and maintenance of a common ground between team members are crucial aspects for the efficiency and safety of complex systems. A method has been designed to analyze communication between members of a bridge team of a merchant ship, that was recorded during training sessions on a bridge simulator. This method aims to pointing out the positive(More)
Innovation often starts with a trigger: a new element made available that leads to new ideas, products and activities. A participatory approach is presented, to exploit such triggers and find possible new uses and interactions. The paper focuses on tools to introduce these new elements to participants with an experiment of several workshops. We discuss the(More)
The purpose of the study is to model manual submarine steering and its effects on helmsmen in terms of performance and mental workload. This activity is first formalized according to (a) cognitive requirements, by identifying different levels of control, and (b) perceptual–motor requirements, by analysing the directional compatibility of control–display(More)
Dynamic function allocation (between human agents or between human and technical agents) is a crucial issue in complex sociotechnical systems, particularly in changing or demanding situations. This issue has not yet been explicitly addressed in the Cognitive Work Analysis framework. This paper presents a conceptual and methodological proposal for designers(More)

Between some processes of teamwork (adaptation and communication) and performance; 2. Between psychosocial dimensions and the teamwork's processes; 3. Between psychosocial dimensions and performance. Fourteen crews responded to(More)
In continuation of work resulting from the collaboration between DCNS and two laboratories (CRPCC and LABSTICC) from the University of South Brittany on Ecological Interface Design, we present an experiment to compare two interfaces. One was designed following the principles of ecological interface design, the other is a more traditional interface. This(More)
