A simplified modeling approach for human system interaction
2008 (English)In: 2008 Winter Simuation Conference: (WSC 2008) ; Miami, Florida, USA, 7 - 10 December 2008 / [ed] Scott J. Mason, Piscataway, NJ: IEEE Communications Society, 2008, 903-908 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Despite increasing dependency on technology, the importance of humans is expected to increase and to provide a realistic basis for decision support; both technical and organizational processes must be included in simulation models. In a rapidly changing environment, skill development is also important and should be considered when developing simulation models. This paper describes a three step straightforward method that support the implementation of supporting (human dependent) processes, operators competence and competence development using learning curves to obtain a more representative simulation of system performance. The effect on the performance measures are also demonstrated based on a case study of a highly automated press line. The advantages and disadvantages with the proposed method are also discussed.
