Abstract
Results are provided for the analyses of eleven operator positions in the Halifax Class Frigate operations room using the Hierarchical Goal Analysis (HGA) approach. Following mission analyses, a hierarchy of goals assigned to different operators was produced. Two follow-on analyses were conducted to identify potential instabilities in the system and requirements for upward information flow between operators. Operational Sequence Diagrams (OSDs) were produced for five critical task sequences and the corresponding task networks were implemented and tested in the Integrated Performance Modeling Environment (IPME). The final product of the project was the generation of a list of critical operations room activities supported by proposed solutions. The report concludes HGA and IPME are suitable tools to support the analyses of complex predominantly ‘cognitive’ systems.
