Introducing Structural Considerations into Complexity Metrics

Abstract : Field observations and focused interviews of Air Traffic Controllers have been used to generate a list of key complexity factors in Air Traffic Control. The underlying structure of the airspace was identified as relevant in many of the factors. A preliminary investigation has revealed that the structure appears to form the basis for abstractions that reduce the difficulty of maintaining Situational Awareness, particularly the projection of future traffic situations. Three examples of such abstractions were identified: standard flows, groupings, and critical points. Preliminary approaches to developing metrics including these structural considerations are discussed.
