A significant benefit from strenuous efforts to optimally man next-generation Navy combatants is the re-orientation of the manner in which work is accomplished within the command center. The necessary shift from direct control of weapon and sensor systems towards human supervision of semi-automated tasks has profound implications for the workstation design. Task-centered design has emerged as a key component in the development of human-system integration strategies to meet new warfighting requirements. This presentation discusses how new design concepts are enabling greater work efficiency and multi-tasking in command center workstations. Human-interface technology advances will impact team organization and work procedures: Intra- and inter-team coordination is critical to the success of future ships and battlegroups. The impact of task-centric design principles and task management features on team workload and future warfighting procedures is reviewed and extended to demonstrate support of mission health, readiness and resource concerns of higher echelon commanders.
