McCloy, Tom, Harper-Sciarini, Michelle, Durso, Frank, Jentsch, Florian, Kanki, Barbara and Rogers, William (2011): Framing the Design, Evaluation, and Certification Process for NextGen Technologies and Procedures: Automation Roles and Responsibilities. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society 55th Annual Meeting 2011. pp. 120-122.
To address the foreseeable safety and environmental issues associated with the projected increase in air traffic, an overhaul of the existing air traffic management system, referred to as NextGen, is underway. To support NextGen capabilities, a system of new technologies and procedures will replace or be integrated with current technologies and procedures. This overhaul will, no doubt, change a pilot's roles and responsibilities, in addition to challenging their existing and future interactions with flight deck automation. To address these challenges, current efforts are being made to develop taxonomies, guidelines, and recommendation that aid with designing, evaluating, and certifying NextGen technologies and procedures. The specific focus for these products is on mitigating pilot error that results from the poor design and integration of NextGen technologies and procedures. The goal of the proposed panel will be to introduce these products, and gain insight and receive feedback from the audience on their methodology and their practical application.

Parke, Bonny, Hobbs, Alan and Kanki, Barbara (2010): PASSING THE BATON: AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF SHIFT HANDOVER. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society 54th Annual Meeting 2010. pp. 502-506.
Shift handovers occur in many safety-critical environments, including aviation maintenance, medicine, air traffic control, and mission control for space shuttle and space station operations. Shift handovers are associated with increased risk of communication failures and human error. In dynamic industries, errors and accidents occur disproportionately after shift handover. Typical shift handovers involve transferring information from an outgoing shift to an incoming shift via written logs, or in some cases, face-to-face briefings. The current study explores the possibility of improving written communication with the support modalities of audio and video recordings, as well as face-to-face briefings. Fifty participants participated in an experimental task which mimicked some of the critical challenges involved in transferring information between shifts in industrial settings. All three support modalities -- face-to-face, video, and audio recordings, reduced task errors significantly over written communication alone. The support modality most preferred by participants was face-to-face communication; the least preferred was written communication alone.

Training in cockpit resource management training (now known generically as crew resource management training) for airline flight crews was introduced in the late 1970's. It has spread through many air carriers in the U.S. commercial aviation industry, to several foreign carriers and to various sectors of U.S. and Canadian military aviation. This training has also been extended from the cockpit to cabin crews to maintenance and to air traffic control. Although specific programs differ from one organization to another, CRM as used here typically involves training in several interpersonal and team-related concepts: (e.g., communication skills, team decision-making) as well as skills for individual decision making such as self-knowledge, situational awareness, and assertiveness skills. The effect of CRM training in airline flight operations has been widely studied during the 1980s. Numerous reports document CRM's positive impact on the attitudes and performance of flight crews (cf., Helmreich, Foushee, Benson,&Russini, 1986; Helmreich, Predmore, Irwin, Butler, Taggart, Willhelm, Clothier, 1991). Taken together the evidence shows that team coordination among aviation "mangers" and between them and subordinates, improves system effectiveness and safety. Teamwork in aviation has recently become a topic of importance and interest. For example, as a result of recent work researching team concepts in aviation maintenance, further investigations have been recommended by both industry and government groups as a national priority (Federal Aviation Administration "The National Plan for Aviation Human Factors," Washington, DC: 1991). CRM training has subsequently been introduced to maintenance and in Air Traffic Control as well. The intention of this panel is to discuss the underlying concepts of teamwork training, its historical perspective, and current research activities and state of the art of CRM training and its varied application in the aviation field. The first panelist will present a brief historical background and philosophy of CRM and how the foundation of CRM training was established. Building on this, the second panelist will discuss CRM research activities as it relates to flight crews in the commercial aviation area. The third panelist will present the implementation of CRM in the military setting and what effects it has had on flight crew safety and effectiveness. The application of CRM to maintenance operations will be the focus of the fourth paper which describes implementing a CRM-type training in maintenance and its effects on maintenance performance. Lastly, the fifth panelist will present the initial stages of assessing air traffic controller's attitudes towards management CRM-related concepts. Concluding the panel discussions will be the panel chair who will summarize and highlight the major points.
