Micro SAINT — A Tool for Modeling Human Performance in Systems

  • K. Ronald Laughery

Abstract

Over the past few decades, there has been an increasing call for the development of quantitative tools for the analysis of human engineering problems. One of the emerging engineering technologies for quantitative analysis is computer simulation. In the mid 1970s, the Air Force Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory (AFAMRL) sponsored an effort for the development of a simulation language specifically aimed at the human engineering community. This package, entitled SAINT (Systems Analysis of Integrated Networks of Tasks), received widespread recognition as a general systems engineering tool in addition to a human performance modeling tool. SAINT kindled the interest of the human engineering community in computer simulation as a tool for human performance analysis.
