Abstract
Through a human engineering evaluation of movement, communication and equipment usage patterns during tactical exercises, limitations in the design of the DDH280 bridge are identified. The conclusions drawn from each of these analyses are compared to those from a previous analysis of bridge activities during harbour entrances and exits. Several of the problems identified were found to be common to both types of activities. In addition, the study of tactical exercises highlighted the requirement for better internal ship communications and workstation design. Recommendations for improvements to the bridge are included.
