Effects of Trust, Self-Confidence, and Feedback on the Use of Decision Automation

Wiczorek, Rebecca ; Meyer, Joachim (2019-03-12)

Operators often fail to rely sufficiently on alarm systems. This results in a joint human-machine (JHM) sensitivity below the one of the alarm system. The ‘confidence vs. trust hypothesis’ assumes the use of the system depends on the weighting of both values. In case of higher confidence, the task is performed manually, if trust is higher, the user relies on the system. Thus, insufficient relia...

ACT-R model for: A Cognitive Modeling Approach to Strategy Formation in Dynamic Decision Making

Sabine, Prezenski (2018-01)

This ACT-R model complements the publications "A Cognitive Modeling Approach to Strategy Formation in Dynamic Decision Making" and "Implementing Mental Model Updating in ACT-R". The model uses an exemplar-based and a rule-based Approach and meta-cognitive aspects. The model solves and auditoy categorization task.

Interactive learning of dynamic systems

Prezenski, Sabine (2019)

People who want to achieve a goal with a previously unknown technical system simply try it out and learn through feedback from the system how to use it. This is referred to as interactive Learning. To investigate the usability of such systems, elaborate user studies are carried out. Additionally, changes in the system require new studies. Cognitive models simulate the cognitive processes of use...

Full shift usage of smart glasses in order picking processes considering a methodical approach of continuous user involvement

Murauer, Cornelia Sophie (2019)

Smart factories, in which processes are partially or completely automated and digitalized, are the future. Automobile production is also currently undergoing said change towards ‘Industry 4.0’. While the degree of automation is very high in car body construction due to the use of robots, the degree of automation in logistics varies depending on the process. By contrast, in transportation proces...

Aufmerksamkeitsfokus beim Bewegungslernen

Wähnert, Svetlana (2019)

Bei Bewegungsaufgaben mit Lernbedarf, scheint der Fokus auf den Umwelteffekt (externer Aufmerksamkeitsfokus) zu anderen Lernergebnissen zu führen als der Fokus auf den eigenen Körper (interner Aufmerksamkeitsfokus). Viele Studien konnten dabei eine Überlegenheit des externen Aufmerksamkeitsfokus aufzeigen. Die vorliegende Forschungsarbeit beinhaltet sowohl einen Grundlagen- als auch einen Anwen...

On the Relation Between Reliance and Compliance in an Aided Visual Scanning Task

Wiczorek, Rebecca ; Meyer, Joachim ; Günzler, Torsten (2012)

Alarms, alerts, and other binary cues affect user behavior in complex ways. One relevant distinction is the suggestion that there are two different responses to alerts – compliance (the tendency to perform an action cued by the alert) and reliance (the tendency to refrain from actions as long as no alert is issued). An experiment tested the dependence of the two behaviors on the Positive and Ne...

Benefits of Decision-Support by Likelihood versus Binary Alarm Systems

Wiczorek, Rebecca ; Manzey, Dietrich ; Zirk, Anna (2014)

Recent research has shown that the use of 3-stage likelihood alarm systems (LAS) has the potential to mitigate performance deficits associated with the use of binary alarm systems (BAS). The additional likelihood information can guide operators’ behavior and improve their decision-making accuracy. Comparisons of LAS with different numbers of stages are missing so far. Therefore, the current stu...

Supporting Attention Allocation in Multitask Environments

Wiczorek, Rebecca ; Manzey, Dietrich (2014)

Objective: The aim of the current study was to investigate potential benefits of likelihood alarm systems (LASs) over binary alarm systems (BASs) in a multitask environment. Background: Several problems are associated with the use of BASs, because most of them generate high numbers of false alarms. Operators lose trust in the systems and ignore alarms or cross-check all of them when other info...

Is Operators' Compliance with Alarm Systems a Product of Rational Consideration?

Wiczorek, Rebecca ; Manzey, Dietrich (2010)

Most theories about operators' responses to alarm systems suggest that the operators' behavior is guided by their trust towards the system which in turn results from the subjective perception of system properties, namely the perceived reliability of the alarm system. However, some doubts about that assumption have arisen as recent research has not proven the mediating effect of trust. The purpo...

Current Trends in Research on Behavioral Development in the Federal Republic of Germany

Silbereisen, Rainer K. ; Schuhler, Petra (1982)

The state and perspective of developmental psychology in the Federal Republic of Germany is analyzed with respect to (a) professional education, (b) resources for research, (c) actual fields of research, and (d) media of professional communication. Current trends of research were investigated by a combination of multi-category content analyses of national (and international) journal publication...

Maturational Timing and the Development of Problem Behavior

Silbereisen, Rainer K. ; Petersen, Anne C. ; Albrecht, Helfried T. ; Kracke, Bärbel (1989)

Previous research demonstrated a higher risk for problem behaviors among early as compared to late maturing girls. In the present study, the role of maturational timing was assessed within the framework of a developmental model for adolescent problem behavior. Data obtained twice, one year apart, on 62 girls in early adolescence (11 to 12 years of age) and 193 girls in middle adolescence (14 to...

Trust in high-reliability organizations

Schöbel, Markus (2009)

The present article aims to highlight the effects of trust on safety performance in high-reliability organizations (HROs) like nuclear power plants, chemical plants or hospital emergency departments. The author claims that not only beneficial but also detrimental effects have to be considered in the analysis of trust within these socio-technical systems. Potential safety outcomes of trusting be...

Human Performance Consequences of Automated Decision Aids in States of Sleep Loss

Reichenbach, Juliane ; Onnasch, Linda ; Manzey, Dietrich (2011)

Objective: The authors investigated how human performance consequences of automated decision aids are affected by the degree of automation and the operator’s functional state. Background: As research has shown, decision aids may not only improve performance but also lead to new sorts of risks. Whereas knowledge exists about the impact of system characteristics (e.g., reliability) on human perf...

Misuse of Automation: The Impact of System Experience on Complacency and Automation Bias in Interaction with Automated Aids

Reichenbach, Juliane ; Onnasch, Linda ; Manzey, Dietrich (2010)

The study investigates how complacency and automation bias effects in interaction with automated aids are moderated by system experience. Participants performed a supervisory control task supported by an aid for fault identification and management. Groups differed with respect to how long they worked with the aid until eventually an automation failure occurred, and whether this failure was the ...

Complacency and Bias in Human Use of Automation: An Attentional Integration

Parasuraman, Raja ; Manzey, Dietrich (2010)

Objective: Our aim was to review empirical studies of complacency and bias in human interaction with automated and decision support systems and provide an integrated theoretical model for their explanation. Background: Automation-related complacency and automation bias have typically been considered separately and independently. Methods: Studies on complacency and automation bias were analyze...

Human Performance Consequences of Stages and Levels of Automation: An Integrated Meta-Analysis

Onnasch, Linda ; Wickens, Christopher D. ; Li, Huiyang ; Manzey, Dietrich (2013)

Objective: We investigated how automation-induced human performance consequences depended on the degree of automation (DOA). Background: Function allocation between human and automation can be represented in terms of the stages and levels taxonomy proposed by Parasuraman, Sheridan, and Wickens. Higher DOAs are achieved both by later stages and higher levels within stages. Method: A meta-analy...

Operators’ Adaption to Unreliability of Alarm Systems: A Performance and Eye-Tracking Analysis

Onnasch, Linda ; Ruff, Stefan ; Manzey, Dietrich (2012)

Operators in complex environments are supported by alarm-systems that indicate when to shift attention to certain tasks. As alarms are not perfectly reliable, operators have to select appropriate strategies of attention allocation in order to compensate for unreliability and maintain overall performance. This study investigates how humans adapt to differing alarm-reliabilities. Within a multi-t...
