Differences in Situational Awareness and How to Manage Them in Development of Complex Systems

  title={Differences in Situational Awareness and How to Manage Them in Development of Complex Systems},
  author={Jens Alfredson},
Situationsmedvetenhet (Eng. Situational Awareness), (SA), handlar om att ha koll pa laget och vara medveten om vad som hander. Redan da ett komplext system utvecklas far vi en mojlighet att paverka ... 
Managing Differences in Situational Awareness Due to Roles in the Design-Use Process of Complex Systems
How Situational Awareness (SA) can differ between roles in the design-use process is described and used as a tool for improving a design process. Expand
What's in your mind? : Collegial Verbalisation - An ecological approach to knowledge elicitation
A comparison study of how knowledge elicitation of the work of professional operators, using traditional methods such as concurrent or retrospective verbalization is problematic, affects the quality of instruction. Expand
A Theoretical Framework for Shared Situational Awareness in Sociotechnical Systems
A framework to understand the goals and requirements for designing processes to create Shared Situational Awareness (SSA) inociotechnical systems is developed, based on the Capability Maturity Model (CMM) and systems thinking perspective. Expand
Confidence Bias in Situation Awareness
The concept of confidence bias in Situation Awareness, the perception of own situational knowledge, a meta-cognition aspect of SA, is explored, finding participants who had lower confidence bias were found to have better performance. Expand
Flight simulator training: assessing the potential
Mental workload is an important concept and has been proven to be a precursor to situation awareness and operative performance. This thesis describes methods to measure mental workload through selfExpand
Prediction in Situation Awareness: Confidence Bias and Underlying Cognitive Abilities
Sixteen military fighter pilots performed and air combat simulation, where their Levels 1, 2, and 3 situational awareness (SA) was assessed using the Situation Awareness Global Assessment TechniqueExpand
A Proactive Genotype for Cybernetic Systems
This paper details a concept model for proactive competence, that provides a bridge between Situational Awareness (SA) and Operational Agility (OA) models, and provides a measure of underpinning theory to SA and OA models that has been lacking from existing approaches. Expand
System Characteristics and Contextual Constraints for Future Fighter Decision Support
System characteristics and contextual constraints are highlighted to guide research as well as system development for intelligent fighter pilot support and distributed unmanned and manned decision making. Expand
Coordination and Logistic Aspects in Computer Based Training for Emergency Situations
This report presents research study conducted at Linkoping University on coordination and logistics training design in simulation based environment.This study is based on C3Fire simulationExpand
Context adaptable driver information--or, what do whom need and want when?
This study investigated what information people perceive that they need and want from the car in different contexts and to what extent there is consensus about the function and developed a new methodology that may be used in the design of a context adaptive driver information system. Expand


Correspondence, cognition and sensemaking : A radical empiricist approach to situation awareness
The importance of 'situation awareness' (SA) in assessing and predicting operator competence in complex environments has become increasingly apparent in recent years. It has been widely establishedExpand
Comparing measurements of shared situational awareness in a microworld with a developmental environment
The results indicate that the measurement techniques are comparable over settings, and that the measurements of shared situational awareness in a microworld with similar measures in a developmental environment are comparable. Expand
Evaluation of a Computational Model of Situational Awareness
Although the use of the psychological construct of situational awareness (SA) assists researchers in creating a flight environment that is safer and more predictable, its true potential remainsExpand
Fördelade kunskapsprocesser i ledningscentraler vid nödsituationer : Koordination och situationsmedvetenhet
This thesis contributes to an understanding of how people work in co-ordination centres for controlling dynamic environments. It examines several theoretical perspectives that have been used to anaExpand
Situation Awareness and the Cognitive Management of Complex Systems
The issue of how to support situation awareness among operators of complex systems or vehicles is a growing concern in a number of industries, especially when automation takes the operators partlyExpand
Situation Awareness and Workload in Aviation
A pilot faces special challenges imposed by the need to control a multivariate lagged system in a heterogeneous multitask environment. The time lags between critical variables require prediction inExpand
Situation Awareness as Distributed Cognition
In this paper we argue that the predominant models of Situation Awareness (SA) are inadequate for the study of systems operated by teams. The reason for this is that these models are based onExpand
Situational awareness in the commercial aircraft cockpit: a cognitive perspective
  • M. Adams, R. Pew
  • Engineering
  • 9th IEEE/AIAA/NASA Conference on Digital Avionics Systems
  • 1990
A cognitive theory is presented that has relevance for the definition and assessment of situational awareness in the cockpit. The theory asserts that maintenance of situation awareness is aExpand
Situation Awareness Requirements for Infantry Platoon Leaders
This research identified the SA requirements for infantry small unit leaders and may be adapted to identify SA requirements in other domains characterized by small, cohesive teams operating in dynamic environments and as the basis for developing SA metrics in these domains. Expand
Toward a Theory of Situation Awareness in Dynamic Systems
  • M. Endsley
  • Psychology, Computer Science
  • Hum. Factors
  • 1995
A theoretical model of situation awareness based on its role in dynamic human decision making in a variety of domains is presented and design implications for enhancing operator situation awareness and future directions for situation awareness research are explored. Expand
