Abstract
This report summarises a Human Factors analysis of inter-operator communication requirements and workspace spatial layout of a Joint Operations Centre (JOC) that was established to support the Coalition Attack Guidance Experiment (CAGE) IIIB. A three-pronged approach was adopted for data collection including direct observation, operator interview, and a questionnaire survey. The analysis revealed the strength and weakness of four communication means for information exchange in the JOC, adjacency requirements among functional teams, and the effectiveness of JOC layout to facilitate inter-operator collaboration. Results from this study will benefit the planning of the future CAGE-series experiment, and support the design and evaluation of Operations Centres in a more general context such as for BattleSpace Deconfliction.
