Abstract
Volume 5 of the report of the DCIEM/ATG study team descries the development of a proposed new training programme devoted to Human Factors in Decision Making (HFDM). It is envisaged that the HFDM training syllabus would replace existing Aircrew Coordination Training (ACT) within the CC-130 community. The proposed training can be distinguished from other approaches with similar goals (either explicit or implicit) by its base within a theoretical framework of human information processing. The differences lie less in the content than in the way the material is organised and shaped by theory. The proposed HFDM training is based on two related models of the human information processor. They are the Information Processing (IP) model, and the Perceptual Control Theory (PCT) model. The models are complementary as the IP model sits within the PCT framework. Together they integrate much of what is known about human information processing and decision making. Topics for HFDM training come directly from this theoretical framework. The proposed syllabus is made up of 11 related modules covering the following topics: an introduction to the decision making loop; leadership and followership; the emergence of communication and captaincy in teams and groups; sensation/perception; goal setting; action selection; management of control, attention, time and knowledge; and finally communication.
