Paper Abstract

This paper suggests an approach to modeling reactor control planning and decision-making which serves as a framework for the design of computer based decision aids. The suggested approach combines two distinct theoretical concepts. The first uses a probabilistic graph to characterize the operator's "internal model" of the system behavior; the second invokes the idea of implicit utility maximization as a generic computational heuristic operating on the graph. The model is used to derive some basic design principles of decision aids that might complement operator decision processes in planning control operations.
