(3) Right. When Berson and Crooks presented their analysis, they explained
exactly who participated in the study and how the environmental variables
such as temperature were measured.
They also described clothing and
personal and test equipment that were used.
The HFE test preparations part of TM 29-76 was presented to you so
that when you conduct studies on the SALV project you'll have a model to
use. Tables 9 and 10 report what the pilot and copilot are required to do
(tasks) and the behaviors necessary to accomplish these tasks (subtasks).
You learned about these topics in Lessons 23 and 24 which were about task
During the earlier stages of systems development,
these elements were defined in a conceptual manner. This test was conducted
to determine if the pilot and copilot could, in fact, satisfy the known
human performance requirements of the system.
In analyzing the study, Berson & Crooks reported their results and
document the impact of existing problem areas on mission effectiveness.
Suppose that you had run a similar study on the SALV.
One of the major
findings in this study can be found on Page 89 under conclusions C.2.
Because your copilot and pilot shared part of an important panel subpart,
they interfered with each other in operating the equipment.
As TM 29-76
states, this confusion is 'expected to produce catastrophic failures.' What
is your recommendation?
(1) Train operators so that they would coordinate their activities when
using the shared panel. Turn to Page 43.
(2) Redesign the 'problem' panel so that only one operator uses it. Turn to
(3) Redesign that panel so that no possible interference could occur between
the pilot and copilot. Turn to Page 81.
(4) All these answers are viable alternatives. Turn to Page 11.
