Abstract:

Socio-technical systems operating in complex work domains, such as space operations, need to be resilient to maintain performance under a wide variety of work conditions. When designing socio-technical systems, one way of fostering resilience is to build support for humans in the system to adapt fluently to changing demands. Design approaches accounting for the need for flexibility and adaptation emphasize the need for formative insight to help understand how a team’s collective work is driven by characteristics of the work itself, the work environment and the agents. However, further systematicity is desired for providing formative and comprehensive insight into the effects of work allocation and interaction modes on team adaptation. In addition, current methods are typically static in nature, not explicitly accounting for the temporal dynamics of a team’s coordination of activities. This thesis proposes an approach based on computational modeling of a team’s collective work to analyze adaptation of work strategies in teams, specifically how work allocation and interaction modes can foster and/or limit the availability of appropriate work strategies.
