-== Current Research ​==+== Basics ​==
-'''​[[Extending fan-out]]:''' ​What topics from other scheduling tasks can be applied? ​ How does adjustable/​adaptable robot autonomy effect IT/NT?+'''​Goal:''' ​Make humans more productive.
-'''​Delegation Interface:''' ​I'm working on writing a simulator that allows the delegation of authority ​to agents, and will likely include some self-organization among the agents. ​ This should help with determining various ways of interacting with a group or even a self-organizing swarm of agents.+'''​How:''' ​Allow them to do more tasks.
-== Future Work ==+'''​Claim:'''​ Multiple robots will help.
-'''​Extend Fan-out:'''​ Work on extending fan-out by developing a mathematical model including multiple humans and robots.  ​+== Problem Domain Specifics ==
-== Publications ==+'''​Role of human:'''​ Does the human perform the tasks he schedules? ​ Does he perform secondary tasks? ​ How much involvement does the human have in managing the schedule?
-Philip CookLimitations and extensions of the Wolf-PHC algorithm. Master’s +'''​Role of robots:'''​ Robots are a means to an end They are there to aid the human to complete more tasks than would be completed otherwise.
-thesis, Brigham Young University, 2007.+
-Philip Cook and Michael AGoodrich.  ​MMM-PHCA Particle-Based Multi-Agent Learning Algorithm.  ​ICMLA 2010.+'''​Drucker Quote:'''​ Automation is the concept of the organization of work. (The Practice of Management, p.21) 
 +== Task Allocation == 
 +'''​Diagram for single human manager:'''​ Tree structure, with the human as the root, one or more robots under him, and tasks as leaf nodes (under both the human and robots). 
 +'''​Function Allocation:'''​ Spatial/​temporal may blur task and function allocation concepts in this domain. 
 +'''​Task Clustering:'''​ How should tasks be clustered? ​ By similarity with other tasks? 
 +== Scheduling == 
 +'''​How to modify it:'''​ Modify resource needs, performance requirements,​ etc. and let the system tell you what is feasible? 
 +'''​Adjustable/​Adaptable Autonomy:'''​ Can "​bump"​ deadline by moving to higher autonomy or wait mode.  ​Different levels of autonomy will have different IT/NT signatures. 
 +'''​NT/​IT:'''​ Set intervals? ​ Or is the human/​robots free to choose where their attention is used? 
 +'''​Model:'''​ Can drag tasks to be handled by the robot, but then that robot'​s IT/NT for the human changes. ​ Switch costs need to be addressed as well.  Bars representing IT can possibly be lengthened/​shortened to better use the human'​s attention. 
 +== Possible Experiments == 
 +'''​Resolve Information Sets:'''​ Have two people at two different computers with two different information sets.  Give them a way to communicate,​ and measure task performance and information transmission.
