Abstract : A literature review focusing on the identification of useful engineering design guidelines for adaptive aiding systems was conducted. Approximately 40 articles were reviewed, and over 140 design guidelines were extracted. Sources for the guidelines included concept development, empirical investigations, or analysis or fielded systems, and literature reviews in adaptive aiding technology. A two-dimensional taxonomic structure was developed and used to categorize the guidelines. The first dimension of the taxonomy is based on Rouse's (1988) framework for adaptive aid design. The second dimension focuses on the design implication of each of the identified guidelines. This structure allows for efficient categorization of the information and assists in showing where research results exist to help the designer of adaptive aiding systems. The guidelines are presented with rationale for each guideline included. The guidelines and supporting material in each cell of the taxonomy are analyzed for usefulness. Recommended areas of future research and analysis of the current research status in adaptive aiding is discussed. (MM)
