Envisioned practice, enhanced performance: The riddle of future (ATM) systems
MetadataShow full item record
Future ATM (Air Traffic Management) systems are like envisioned worlds— large, interconnected systems as yet unbuilt and unfielded. Assessing the real impact of design changes in such worlds is very difficult. In this paper we discuss several dimensions of envisioned worlds: plurality, underspecification and groundedness, and evaluate them for the case of future ATM. Each of the dimensions presents pitfalls for developers and designers, while at the same time offering opportunities for clearer access to visions of the future.
