 +== Basics ==
  
 +'''​Goal:'''​ Make humans more productive.
 +
 +'''​How:'''​ Allow them to do more tasks.
 +
 +'''​Claim:'''​ Multiple robots will help.
 +
 +== Problem Domain Specifics ==
 +
 +'''​Role of human:'''​ Does the human perform the tasks he schedules? ​ Does he perform secondary tasks? ​ How much involvement does the human have in managing the schedule?
 +
 +'''​Role of robots:'''​ Robots are a means to an end.  They are there to aid the human to complete more tasks than would be completed otherwise.
 +
 +'''​Drucker Quote:'''​ Automation is the concept of the organization of work. (The Practice of Management, p.21)
 +
 +== Task Allocation ==
 +
 +'''​Diagram for single human manager:'''​ Tree structure, with the human as the root, one or more robots under him, and tasks as leaf nodes (under both the human and robots).
 +
 +'''​Function Allocation:'''​ Spatial/​temporal may blur task and function allocation concepts in this domain.
 +
 +'''​Task Clustering:'''​ How should tasks be clustered? ​ By similarity with other tasks?
 +
 +== Scheduling ==
 +
 +'''​How to modify it:'''​ Modify resource needs, performance requirements,​ etc. and let the system tell you what is feasible?
 +
 +'''​Adjustable/​Adaptable Autonomy:'''​ Can "​bump"​ deadline by moving to higher autonomy or wait mode.  Different levels of autonomy will have different IT/NT signatures.
 +
 +'''​NT/​IT:'''​ Set intervals? ​ Or is the human/​robots free to choose where their attention is used?
 +
 +'''​Model:'''​ Can drag tasks to be handled by the robot, but then that robot'​s IT/NT for the human changes. ​ Switch costs need to be addressed as well.  Bars representing IT can possibly be lengthened/​shortened to better use the human'​s attention.
 +
 +== Possible Experiments ==
 +
 +'''​Resolve Information Sets:'''​ Have two people at two different computers with two different information sets.  Give them a way to communicate,​ and measure task performance and information transmission.
