The Center for Operator Performance has developed a tool to grade display systems. The system examines organization of the system as well as layout of individual graphics. The resulting score both identifies potential enhancements to the display system and allows comparison of displays across multiple platforms. The webinar will review the areas to be evaluated and demonstrate how the tool can be utilized.
