Abstract : Selected psychosocial, personnel, and performance variables are identified and discussed as they apply to the situation of crews of moderate size. Based on current psychological theory, military doctrine, and previously developed and tested functional relationships, these variables are woven into a stochastic mathematical model for digitally simulating closed man-machine systems operated by crews of from 4 to 20 members. The probabilistic model is presented in terms of a detailed logic and processing flow sequence with prescribed input data. Results from the the model, as called for by the logic, include measures of personnel loading, crew safety, and crew performance adequacy. (Author)
