Abstract
The study analyzes the design of operator and system performance measuring systems (PMSs) for computer-based man-machine interfaces. Current evaluation methodologies are assessed and a state-of-the-art PMS methodology is defined. Data logging requirements and limitations are analyzed. It is concluded that there are major difficulties in obtaining data about the cognitive levels of human operation. Performance measures for multiple levels of operator performance are surveyed and classified. Data analysis and presentation techniques are analyzed and a state-of-the-art data presentation system is defined. A comprehensive literature survey on PMS in simulation is appended.
