Project: Research on Diagnosis Performance Influencing Factors in Main Control Rooms

Dates: September 2013 - April 2014
Participants: Chen, K.
Description: The research focuses on the potential factors that shape the diagnosis performance of operators in digitalized main control room. After accomplishing the first experiment for the research in China, I am visiting CEL to design experiment platform for the second experiment in my research, aiming to investigate the influence of information organization and relevance on diagnosis performance. It’s expected that an ecological interface for a hypothetical power plant is developed. The work domain analysis for the target ecological interface design has so far been done under the supervision of Prof. Jamieson. The work that follows is interface design and further experiment design. Actual or potential applications of this research include improved understanding of the influence of interface factors on how operators diagnose unfamiliar problems, which should help in the design of better interfaces.
