|These are good goal statements
These are NOT so good goal statements
Gaps result when workers have difficulty obtaining or processing information or taking actions to control the human machine system
Gaps can also occur when a worker or user does not have sufficien training or experience to interpret information and make a correct decision.
Gap: Demands > Capacities
Demands > Capacities: When demands approach or exceed capacities it becomes difficult and even impossible to maintain control over the human-machine system and achieve desired goals.
