Abstract : Four functions of human operator models for manual control are delineated, and criteria appropriate to models designed to better our understanding of man are developed. Five classes of models are reviewed. Criticisms of models which apply techniques of description developed in automatic control to the human operator are criticised. Models which endeavor to include the operator's internal processes of prediction, planning, and adaptation appear to provide veridical representation of the human operator. (Author)
