Abstract
Several authors have argued that queueing models can be used to predict workload and performance of operators under the single-channel hypothesis of man's information processing capability. The paper used a simple exponential, single-server queueing model to investigate the application of queueing theory to communication and navigation tasks performed aboard the CP-140 Aurora. It was anticipated that the model would provide insight into how individual tasks with low workloads combine to create high workload situations. The results, however, indicated problems originating from the data and the model. A new model was recommended as well as an appropriate data collection technique for the application of queueing theory to multi-task situations.
