Abstract

A human's performance in a complex task is highly dependent on the demands of the task, in the sense that highly demanding situations will often cause a degradation of performance. To maintain performance quality usually extra effort has to be contributed. However, the resources for such extra effort available to the human are limited. In this paper an agent model is proposed in which different types of relations between effort, task demands and performance quality can be used to analyse the human's performance quality. It is illustrated how a support agent incorporating this model can support a human based on different performance criteria. The agent model thus allows to build agent applications that provide optimal support depending on a specific situation and goal of the task. © 2010 IEEE.
