Utilizing Simulation to Train Decision Making with Conflicting Information
- 503 Downloads
The modern operational environment often involves performance utilizing a range of different information systems. Performers are often required to assimilate information, identify any discrepancies between information sources and determine ground truth. As a result, it is critical to prepare individual performers to make effective decisions when faced with information conflicts. This paper presents a discussion of training techniques which can utilize simulation platforms to train skills necessary to prepare performers to make effective decision under these circumstances. Also presented are use case examples of how these strategies could be implemented within simulation platforms across multiple domains. Finally, a training-needs-based approach is presented to guide development of valid and operationally relevant, simulation-based training exercises that target decision making with conflicting information.
