ENROUTE FLIGHT PLANNING: EVALUATING DESIGN CONCEPTS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF COOPERATIVE PROBLEM-SOLVING SYSTEMS

There are many problem-solving tasks that are too complex to fully automate given the current state of technology. Nevertheless, significant improvements in overall system performance could result from the introduction of well-designed computer aids. We have been studying the development of cognitive tools for one such problem-solving task, enroute flight path planning for commercial airlines. Our goal has been twofold. First, we have been developing specific system designs to help with this important practical problem. Second, we have been using this context to explore general design concepts to guide in the development of cooperative problem-solving systems. These design concepts are described, along with illustrations of their application.
