Team Performance and Training
in Complex Environments

Performance is critical in complex and dynamic environments where teams are required to adapt to uncertain information and where the cost of team error is high. We've studied ways to use modeling and simulation not only to provide safe and cost-effective training solutions, but also to ensure that we can track, measure and critique the effect of training on individuals and teams.

Some representative research in this area:

bullet

Automated generation of simulation scenarios for aviation pilot skills training

bullet

Software tool to test crew resource management skills

bullet

Theoretical and empirical studies of skills and knowledge required for pilots
of automated aircraft

bullet

Aeronautical decision-making

bullet

Situation awareness

bullet

Crew resource management

bullet

Distributed teams

bullet

Synthetic teams (Computer Generated Forces)
