Abstract : Preliminary specifications for a hypertext-based adaptive aiding design reference are given. The system will provide a repository for the design and empirical validation of adaptive aiding system designs. Particular emphasis is placed on highlighting design guidelines and empirical support for aiding recommendations. The specification aims to capitalize on design information and guidelines extracted under another AFAIC task. Data types, input/output, and information seeking behavior by designers consulting with the hypertext system are addressed. Particular emphasis is placed on extensibility of the system as more research is conducted in adaptive aiding. User profiles, and recommended hardware and software for system implementation are discussed. A preliminary implementation schedule is provided.
