Abstract : In previous applications of the optimal control model of the human operator it has been assumed that the 'internal model' is an exact replica of the system model. This assumption appears satisfactory in many instances, as has been demonstrated by agreement between model predictions and experimental data. There are situations in which the assumption does not appear tenable. For example, highly complex systems, naive or untrained operators and undetected component failure. This analysis presents methods of implementing an internal model which differs from the system model.
