Purpose and goal

The project will investigate how the design of complex systems can benefit from taking the teamwork perspective. In teamwork research, models are used to understand how teamwork is pursued and to identify the core factors that are essential for a team to be effective.

Expected results and effects

The studied team models are general and in order to be practically useful when designing interfaces and tools for teams, these models need to be applied to the specific domains in question which will be performed in the project. This means that the factors need to be interpreted in the environment and circumstances the team is actually working in. Therefore, in this project, two different flight domains where teamwork is an essential and integrated part of the work process will be analysed and compared. The teams investigated are military fighter pilots and air traffic controllers.

Planned approach and implementation

This project aims at comparing and contrasting the teamwork in the two domains in order to identify design elements that are likely to offer cognitive support for increased team effectiveness. The design elements will be based on domain knowledge and technical plans for future air systems. Finally, the design elements will be mapped to an operationalised design in several prototypes, and an advanced simulator will be used to validate the prototypes.
