WESTT (workload, error, situational awareness, time and teamwork): an analytical prototyping system for command and control
Modern developments in the use of information technology within command and control allow unprecedented degrees of flexibility in the way teams deal with tasks. These developments, together with the increased recognition of the importance of knowledge management within teams present difficulties for the analyst in terms of evaluating the impacts of changes to task or team composition. In this paper we present an approach to this problem that represents team behavior in terms of three linked networks (task, social and knowledge networks) that we have instantiated within the integrative WESTT software tool. By automating many analyses of workload and error we furthermore allow the user to engage in the process of rapid and iterative `analytical prototyping'. In addition, we also present an example of the use of this technique with regard to a proposed tactical vignette.
