Abstract

As in many areas in Human Factors, human performance modeling has a long history in the aviation community. The real-time dynamism and safety criticality of the domain calls for the most advanced tools possible, and also provides a strong testbed for any modeling formalism Recent work has demonstrated significant advances in this field in the last decade, both in terms of applications to aviation and in terms of the domain pushing back and advancing the state of the art in modeling. Despite these advances, however, there is still a gap between even the most advanced models and engineering practice. In this panel, we intend to discuss all of these aspects of human performance modeling in aviation.
