An Evaluation Of Cognitive Skill Degradation In Information Automation, Katherine Volz, Euijung Yang, Rachel Dudley, Elizabeth Lynch, Maria Dropps, Michael Dorneich Sep 2016

An Evaluation Of Cognitive Skill Degradation In Information Automation, Katherine Volz, Euijung Yang, Rachel Dudley, Elizabeth Lynch, Maria Dropps, Michael Dorneich

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Posters

The purpose of this research is to investigate long term effects of cognitive skill degradation through theuse of automation. Even though advanced studies have looked into information automation (IA) in aviation,the amount of empirical data on the effects of these systems on the retention of cognitive skills is lessdeeply examined. Measurement and analysis of the effects of IA on cognitive performance is an importantfirst step in understanding cognitive skill degradation, which should be considered during the design ofthese systems. The use of an automation aid is expected to result in a high level of performance degradationover time. Participants were ...


Developing Game-Based Learning Requirements To Increase Female Middle School Students Interest In Computer Science, Desmond Bonner, Michael Dorneich Sep 2016

Developing Game-Based Learning Requirements To Increase Female Middle School Students Interest In Computer Science, Desmond Bonner, Michael Dorneich

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Posters

This paper presents work on the development of a Game-Based Learning (GBL) application’s requirements for female middle school students which teaches fundamental concepts of programming. Currently, there are not enough students who desire to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematic (STEM) career fields. Additionally, female are underrepresented in STEM fields, and increased female participation may help partially address this gap. GBL was used to encourage middle school student interest in STEM by allowing them to practice computer science concepts in engaging contexts outside the classroom. The game Sorceress of Seasons was built to teach fundamental programming concepts, and was ...


Using Human Factors To Establish Occupant Task Lists For Office Building Simulations, Kelly Kalvelage, Michael Dorneich Sep 2016

Using Human Factors To Establish Occupant Task Lists For Office Building Simulations, Kelly Kalvelage, Michael Dorneich

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Posters

The purpose of this research is to establish an in-depth understanding of task-related occupant behaviors toserve as the basis for the design of an occupant-building interaction interface. Building simulations arefrequently used to design buildings and predict energy performance. Yet, all of these assumptions are relatedto occupant behavior and interactions with the building. In an occupant-controlled environment, anunderstanding of the occupant decision-making process must be represented in the simulation task lists.Current task lists assume general occupant behaviors based on averages, and lack the details required for thisunderstanding. This paper looks to strike a balance between simplicity and complexity in the ...


Utility Of Baroreflex Sensitivity As A Marker Of Stress, Amanda A. Anderson, Nir Keren, Andrew Lilja, Kevin Godby, Stephen B. Gilbert, Warren D. Franke Jun 2016

Utility Of Baroreflex Sensitivity As A Marker Of Stress, Amanda A. Anderson, Nir Keren, Andrew Lilja, Kevin Godby, Stephen B. Gilbert, Warren D. Franke

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Publications

Presently, adaptive systems use various cognitive and cardiovascular measures to evaluate the functional state of the operator. One marker that has been largely ignored as an assessment tool is baroreflex sensitivity (BRS). This study examined the extent to which BRS changed in response to acute psychological and physical stressors. A total of 20 participants underwent 6-min exposures to a psychological stressor and a physical stressor. Baroreceptor sensitivity, blood pressure, heart rate, heart rate variability, stroke volume, cardiac output, mean blood pressure, total peripheral resistance, left ventricular ejection time, and pre-ejection period were continuously measured at rest and throughout the testing ...


High Reliability Organizational Suggestions To Reduce The Risk Of Hospital-Associated Infections, Sandra Catrice Affare May 2016

High Reliability Organizational Suggestions To Reduce The Risk Of Hospital-Associated Infections, Sandra Catrice Affare

Doctoral Dissertations

Over 1.7 million hospital-associated infections (HAIs), resulting in 99,000 deaths, occur each year in the United States. HAIs are defined as infections that occur within 48 hours of hospital admission without evidence of the infection being present or incubating at the time of admission. HAIs are a major concern to the medical community due to the potential loss of life and high costs. Healthcare providers should be accountable for reducing the rates of HAIs and society needs to hold them accountable for the safe implementation and outcomes of the services they provide.

A high-reliability organization (HRO) is commonly ...


Ergonomics In Space Flight – Past, Present, & Future, Robert Consolo Apr 2016

Ergonomics In Space Flight – Past, Present, & Future, Robert Consolo

Human Factors and Applied Psychology Student Conference

From the days of “The Rocket Men” to the uprising of SpaceX, spaceflight has always inspired awe in humanity. If you examine the men that were apart of those first missions, you will find that they were not only the most capable, but won the genetic lottery to become this nations first astronauts. Looking to the times of Mercury, you see the extreme constraints that potential astronaut candidates had to meet in order to go to space. Aside from the rigorous medical testing, potential candidates also had to meet strict height and weight requirements. Early candidates could not be taller ...

The Hidden Challenges Of Team Tutor Development, Desmond Bonner, Anna Slavina, Anastacia Macallister, Joseph Holub, Stephen B. Gilbert, Anne M. Sinatra, Michael C. Dorneich, Eliot H. Winer Jan 2016

The Hidden Challenges Of Team Tutor Development, Desmond Bonner, Anna Slavina, Anastacia Macallister, Joseph Holub, Stephen B. Gilbert, Anne M. Sinatra, Michael C. Dorneich, Eliot H. Winer

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Posters

This paper describes the unexpected challenges of team tutor development such as the task and logistics. Previously, a research team from Iowa State University (ISU) working with the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) developed the reconnaissance (Recon) task for simple team tutoring with the Generalized Intelligent Framework for Tutoring (GIFT) (Bonner et al., 2015; Gilbert et al., 2015). Considerations were included for the testing environment such as audio-based team interactions, initialization of the scenario simultaneously, and the inclusion of eyetracking and screen capture technology. Throughout the process of tutor development, several computational challenges have been encountered such as the ...
