- Display layout in automated flightdecks may change the
traditional instrument scan pattern, leading to loss of skills which
may be needed upon transitioning to conventional aircraft.
- Data presented in integrated/abstracted/simplified forms may not
fully support effective pilot decision making. (pc87)
- Pilots must use automation in a manner not intended by
designers to get desired results or to avoid undesirable
consequences, increasing pilot workload and opportunity for
error, and may have unanticipated and undesirable side effect.
- Automation design prevents the device from performing a
function that seems reasonable to the pilot, requiring the use of
alternative strategies which may increase workload and the
opportunity for error. (pc109)
- Automation changes the role of the pilot from that of a
controller to that of a supervisor. Because most pilots are not
adequately trained for and experienced in this role, errors result.
