Abstract : Three separate but related laboratory experiments were performed with three-man teams in a simulated radar-control interception task. Experiment I investigated the influence of a replacement of one team member with a new operator, the latter having either more or less on-the-job experience than the man replaced. Also investigated was the influence of task organization and task complexity. In Experiment II the influence of training task fidelity, training task organization, and transfer task organization was examined. Finally, Experiment III examined the influence of different amounts of experience on two kinds of training task organization and of transfer task organization. Replacement effects were significant but of short duration, but transfer task organization effects were of longer duration with performance on an independent task organization superior to that on an interaction version except when preceded by individual training and/or training specifically on communication procedures.
