Digital cockpits use large screens that hold multiple displays simultaneously. Some human factors specialists
and users of the equipment claim there is a problem with clutter – excessive display information that can be
distracting or disorienting. Explain whether you believe this plethora of information available is necessary and
should remain as designed, or whether operators should have the option of reducing what is available on the
display. Describe the benefits and disadvantages for your point of view. Consider that the cockpit will be in a
multi-crew setting and other crew may have need of the screens, as well.
Provide at least one scholarly source to support your position. Post your observation (using APA format where
applicable) and comment on at least one other student posting before the end of the module week in
accordance with the requirements as explained in the syllabus.
