Abstract
In support of Canadian Forces acquisition projects, DCIEM has focussed on the development of an integrated approach to workload and performance prediction. Working in conjunction with Canadian Marconi Corporation, a database management system has been developed in which mission analyses can be linked to their corresponding function and task analyses and the resulting task network can be fed into the SAINT simulation package for workload/performance prediction. These task network simulations use probabilistic, rather than deterministic, task flows, and incorporate a range of workload/performance measures. The use of probabilistic simulation allows the identification of conditions of heavier workload which may occur rarely enough to not be detected using deterministic techniques.
