Abstract
To develop its next-generation fleet, the Canadian Navy is putting a priority on reducing the through-life costs of its new ships; one of the most promising ways of achieving this is by optimized crewing, which attempts to make appropriate investments in technology that will allow for a reduced crew complement. As damage control is one of the most important manpower drivers for naval platforms, it is a significant area of focus for optimized crewing efforts in the development of the new Canadian Single-Class Surface Combatant. Defence Research & Development Canada Atlantic has realized that though advanced automation, ‘smart’ systems, and decision aids show great promise for a reduction of crew levels in damage control, they can also make the joint human-machine system more susceptible to faults. Consequently, they have requested that a review be performed of human factors research in automation, ‘smart’ systems, and decision aids to help set the direction for the future design or acquisition of advanced automation for damage control.
