Example text

The notion that experienced operator’s use internally held mental models formed by experience in order to facilitate the development of the higher levels of SA is also fitting, and can be used to effectively explain the differences between the levels of SA achieved by novices and experts. This concept is also underpinned by Klein’s theory of recognition-primed decision-making (Klein, 1998). 18 Distributed Situation Awareness Despite its popularity, the three level model is not without its flaws and has been subject to various criticisms.

Team Situation Awareness Team SA is indubitably more complex than individual SA. Salas, Prince, Baker and Shrestha (1995) point out that there is a lot more to team SA than merely combining individual team member SA. Further, Salas, Muniz and Prince (2006) argue that, due to the cognitive nature of team SA, research into the construct is difficult, deficient and complex. Consequently, team SA suffers from a similar level of contention as the area of individual SA does. Ostensibly team SA is multi-dimensional, comprising individual team member SA, shared SA between team members and also the combined SA of the whole team, the so-called ‘common picture’.
