The Five-Dimensional Task Analysis Visualization (5D-TAV) will prove valuable for use in NASA Human Factors analysis for long duration missions that include self-sustaining environments with limited resources. The tool can be applied to any complex system development effort that incorporates complex human operations or system design in a collaborative engineering environment. Integration of sensor data will enable mission control be alerted to off-nominal conditions during mission execution and to quickly determine a recovery plan. Robotics will benefit from the tool to design complex routines such as autonomous robots for unassisted maintenance or checking of personnel health, equipment health, and consumable status with automatic assessment of risk, error handling, and resource optimization. New researchers for small spacecraft can utilize the tool for defining and controlling tasks allocated to different spacecraft for coordinated swarming. Additional applications include: - Development of training solutions for high stress environments - Remote / Autonomous control of equipment and systems - Emergency preparedness and emergency response - Integrated workforce planning and program management - Optimization of field service and sustainment support across enterprises - Code development performance metrics
Existing CPC projects with Army and Navy can all take advantage of the 5D-TAV capabilities for workforce planning, supply chain management, obsolescence control, and condition-based maintenance (CBM) optimization. There are additional opportunities with the Army and Navy to develop service-wide applications to support complex system planning, management, and support requirements. Applications include but are not limited to: - Development of training solutions and measure effectiveness - Remote / Autonomous control of equipment and systems - Emergency response planning and training - Integrated workforce planning and program management - Optimization of field service and sustainment support across enterprises - Code development performance metrics - Task allocation for coordinated autonomous vehicle interaction For many of our existing government customers, marketing of this tool is a logical extension to work we are now performing. Acceptance by key stakeholders such as PEO-GCS, CERDEC and CECOM will provide us with the opportunity to broaden its usage across those organizations. The tool will also become an available component of our commercial Business Management System (BMS) portal software sold to the Army. We have successfully marketed components of the BMS to other government and commercial customers. CPC is moving into the business of providing software as a service (SAAS) and the 5D-TAV is a strong addition to our developing software product line.
