Abstract : This is a report on transport category airplane flight crew workload measurement techniques as used in cockpit development and aircraft certification tests by major U.S. airframe manufacturers. It reviews the fundamentals of: crew size certification; workload measures and criteria; workload studies made during aircraft design; and workload studies made after the design has been established, including those used in flight test. Certain documentation practices are identified. The limitations of the currently used practices and the needs for improved workload measurement techniques are addressed. (Author)
