Speyer, J.J., Monteil, C., Blomberg, R.D., & Fouillot, J.P. (1990). Impact of New Technology on Operational Interface: From Design Aims to Flight Evaluation and Measurement. Advisory Group for Aerospace Research and Development No. 301, Vol. 1.

  1.  
  2. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Survey
    Evidence: "Insertion of navaids not in the database and of waypoints by means of the scratchpad was found to be an area for improvement." (page 11.11)
    Issue: interface may be poorly designed (Issue #39) See Issue details
    Strength: +1
    Aircraft: A320, B737-400
    Equipment: FMS

  3.  
  4. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Survey
    Evidence: "Both [captains and copilots] would welcome initial training putting more emphasis on basics and practical hints to reinforce know how and general understanding." (page 11-12)
    Issue: deficiencies in basic aircraft training may exist (Issue #63) See Issue details
    Strength: +1
    Aircraft: A310
    Equipment: automation

  5.  
  6. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Survey
    Evidence: "Some found that in rare instances it was hard to get quickly by specific data such as runway-, route-, or way-point-changes or return to departure." (page 11.11)
    Issue: data entry and programming may be difficult and time consuming (Issue #112) See Issue details
    Strength: +1
    Aircraft: A310
    Equipment: FMS

  7.  
  8. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Survey
    Evidence: "Pilots with more than 500 hours on the A310 generally judged the aircraft more positively than those with less. ... - The arrangement of the FMS's [in sic] keys was fully accepted by the group having 500 hours, false inputs being considered possible nonetheless due to close location of parallel line-select keys. Fast slewing apparently would lead to stepping past pages, incorrect data format was often experienced. But the menu technique and scratchpad were highly appreciated, learning being best accomplished 'on the job'." (page 11.11)
    Issue: data entry errors on keyboards may occur (Issue #71) See Issue details
    Strength: +1
    Aircraft: A310
    Equipment: FMS

  9.  
  10. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Survey
    Evidence: "As in the Curry and Wiener surveys on the B-767/MD-80 the coordination of AFS (lateral/vertical) and ATS (autothrust) is not considered fully satisfactory especially in altitude capture during descent or localizer capture in Land mode." (page 11.11)
    Issue: automation integration may be poor (Issue #11) See Issue details
    Strength: +1
    Aircraft: A310
    Equipment: autoflight: autopilot & autothrust

  11.  
  12. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Survey
    Evidence: "The location of the navigation display is found suboptimal since it is partially hidden behind the control column. Knowledge and practice with the display's symbology was found to be best acqired during simulator and line training." (page 11.11)
    Issue: interface may be poorly designed (Issue #39) See Issue details
    Strength: +1
    Aircraft: A310
    Equipment: automation: displays

  13.  
  14. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Survey
    Evidence: "Because of missing capacity and redundancy of the ECAM, switching from screen to paper checklist and vice versa was also considered as potentially confusing." (page 11.11)
    Issue: non-automated pilot tasks may not be integrated (Issue #153) See Issue details
    Strength: +1
    Aircraft: A310
    Equipment: EICAS (ECAM)

  15.  
  16. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Survey
    Evidence: "The ECAM's operating and display rules did not create any difficulties. Aural warnings were however considered as too loud attention catchers." (page 11.11)
    Issue: displays (visual and aural) may be poorly designed (Issue #92) See Issue details
    Strength: +1
    Aircraft: A310
    Equipment: EICAS (ECAM)
