A Procedure for Quantification of Technological Changes on Human Resources.
Potter, Norman R.; And Others
To assist the human factor psychologist in predicting the human resources requirements based on the introduction of a new technology, a study was conducted to locate and apply an existing method, or to develop a new procedure for quantifying the effects of incoming technology. Five steps were taken: search and critical analysis of recent literature; development of Design Option Decision Trees (DODT) describing two Air Force systems; synthesis of existing techniques to develop a procedure; and evaluation of the procedure's feasibility. A methodological procedure integrating the DODT with a modification of the method of summated ratings was developed as a feasible approach for measuring the effects of advances of technology. (SK)
