The communicative aspects of distributed dynamic decision making in the ROLF-environment
2000 (English)In: In the 5th Conference on Natural Decision Making, 2000Conference paper (Refereed)
The ongoing development of the ROLF 2010 Joint Mobile Command and Control concept has led to several research questions about the usage of new technology in distributed decision making (see for example Artman & Persson, forthcoming). The ROLF-environment provides the decisionmakers with public as well as private representations (e.g. computer screens) and a wide range of communication tools. The focus of this article is the way in which the participants in such decision making should use the main public screen, the Visioscope™. The "more is more"-thought implies that the commander should benefit from getting as much information as possible. This means, for instance that direct updating without intervention of the commanders should give them a better view of the situation than if they were forced to update the Visioscope™ themselves. This latter approach would enforce a processing of the sequential and spatial organisation of the objects with which they are working. A series of tests are therefore being performed at the National Defence College in order to study the effects of the two conditions.
