process cells. The Advanced Integrated Maintenance System (AIMS)
consisting of advanced elbows-down, electronic, force-reflecting servo-
manipulators with remote viewing, sound, tooling, and transporter
capabilities will be capable of performing all necessary remote repair
and maintenance tasks. The design of the AIMS control room, where the
numan operator interfaces with remote equipment, has been an important
aspect of the RCE activity. The design goal has been to provide a safe,
efficient interaction between the operator and all AIMS equipment. This
paper describes the five-stage method used in the development of this
design: mission description, design requirements, preliminary design
solution, construction, and verification of the mock-up, and refinement
of the design solution.
The authors' goal was to generate a clear account of tasks that
would be done in the control room, the information and outputs operators
would need to do these tasks, the characteristics of the operators
themselves, and the characteristics of the environment in which the
tasks would be performed.;
Typical remote small-volume maintenance tasks (e.g., removing a..-
bolt from a metal plate) and typical large-volume tasks (e.g., unbolting
and transporting a large flange) were constructed in a simulated remote
environment. Manipulator operators then performed the tasks under a
series of experimental conditions, providing the means to generate
concise statements about the information and controls the operator would
need in a hot facility control room.1'2
