The combined effects of automation and global competition have changed the manufacturing environment considerably. The change is from a traditional product or process oriented manufacturing to a fully automated or semi-automated manufacturing environment, producing limited quantities of a large range of products. Inexpensive and unlimited computing power has been the single cause for these changes. What impact have these changes had on human factors/ergonomics professionals? Does a problem really exist and is its existence recognized in affected areas by other people, those not involved with human factors? Have human factors professionals taken proactive approaches to these changes? What are the new techniques available to the human factors professionals in this application area? This panel will address some of the issues and concerns in this area.

The need for interface systems which support human interaction with complex systems has grown in importance with the evolution of the supporting systems technology. Four levels of system performance have been identified as these systems have evolved, namely basic data processing systems (beginning in 1954, batch mode), integrated data processing systems (1960-1970 batch and interactive modes), management information systems (predominantly interactive mode), and decision support systems (1978 to present, interactive mode). To this list can now be added expert systems, and real-time advisory systems both outgrowths of technology developments in the field of artificial intelligence.

Rouse, William B., Geddes, Norman D. and Curry, Renwick E. (1987): An Architecture for Intelligent Interfaces: Outline of an Approach to Supporting Operators of Complex Systems. In Human-Computer Interaction, 3 (2) pp. 87-122.
The conceptual design of a comprehensive support system for operators of complex systems is presented. Key functions within the support system architecture include information management, error monitoring, and adaptive aiding. One of the central knowledge sources underlying this functionality is an operator model that involves a combination of algorithmic and symbolic models for assessing and predicting an operator's activities, awareness, intentions, resources, and performance. Functional block diagrams are presented for the overall architecture as well as the key elements within this architecture. A variety of difficult design issues are discussed, and ongoing efforts aimed at resolving these issues are noted.
