SOME ASPECTS OF THE ACQUISITIONS OF SKILL IN CONTROLLING SHIPS
A brief discussion is presented of some aspects of the performance of the human operators being a part of each marine traffic guidance system. Some basic concepts of the study of the human performance are introduced, coming from experimental psychology. Although the views expressed in this paper mainly concern the men directly involved in controlling the ships, the approach is applicable to all people playing a role in the systems concerned. The paper stresses the importance and usefulness of the concepts skill, acquisition and measurement of skill and simulation as a tool to study these and other factors, contributing to the optimum performance of the marine traffic system.
