A useful approach towards improving interface design is to incorporate known HCI theory in design tools. As a step toward this, we have created a tool incorporating several known psychological results (e.g., alias generation rules and the keystroke model). The tool, simple additions to a spreadsheet developed for psychology, helps create theoretically(More)

This is within the Railway Ergonomics Control Assessment Package (RECAP). Among the developments have been an audit instrument (REQUEST), tools to assess situation awareness (RESA) and staff loading (RELOAD), and(More)

The primary requirement is the ability to create simulations usable by both subjects and models. Additional general simulation requirements can be noted for our applications in particular, such as(More)
