OBJECTIVE The primary contribution of this work is the development of an abstract framework to which a variety of multitasking scenarios can be mapped. The metaphor of a juggler spinning plates was introduced to represent an operator performing multiple concurrent tasks. BACKGROUND This allowed seeking a quantitative model for management of multiple(More)
INTRODUCTION The last two decades have brought significant change to the commercial transport aircraft flight deck. Complex functions once performed by human pilots are now routinely performed by automated systems. Autoflight systems control aircraft altitude, heading, and speed as selected by the pilots. Flight management systems (FMSs) allow the human(More)

This research investigates the application of network simulation to enhance network management in real-time. Its focus is on ad hoc wireless networks as needed for future public safety emergency response, homeland security, and future combat system networks where the network requirements and topology are rapidly changing. The network simulation is used to(More)

Cockpit task management (CTM) is the initiation, monitoring, prioritization, execution , and termination of multiple, concurrent tasks by flight crews. In this research, we used 2 part-task simulator studies to elicit from pilots the factors actually used in task prioritization. Analysis resulted in the identification of 12 specific factors that the pilots(More)
The objectives of this research were to develop and evaluate an agent-based program to facilitate Cockpit Task Management (CTM) in commercial transpart aircralL During the course of this research we refined the concept of CTM and renamed it Agenda Management (AMgt). We developed an agent-based program called the AgendaMauager (AMgr) and evaluated it in a(More)
