Abstract
The report describes results from the analysis of questionnaire data collected in the Test Series 1 Evaluation of TACCDAS design concepts. The questionnaires covered four general areas; (1) the ease of use of the various TACCDAS functions; (2) the effectiveness of TACCDAS compared with present manual systems; (3) opinions about a number of specific TACCDAS design issues that had emerged during the development of TACCDAS; and, (4) questions about the ergonomic characteristics of TACCDAS. Players and evaluation support personnel alike gave consistently strong positive opinions about TACCDAS superiority over manual Command Post systems. TACCDAS was judged equally superior for keeping track of operational detail, and for keeping an overview of the operational situation. They were also positive about the potential impact of TACCDAS on the job satisfaction characteristics of command duties. There were no indications of stereotyped resistance to computerization.
