Watchstanding in shipboard command centers requires U.S. Navy crews to complete timecritical and externally paced task assignments in an accurate and timely manner. Requirements for optimized crew sizes in future ships are driving system designers toward human–computer interface designs that mitigate task and workload demands in a multi-task work environment. The multi-task mission is characterized by multiple concurrent task demands and parallel task goals of varying time duration. Design…
