Once again go to the NTSB Web site (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and select one aviation accident report that particularly interests you that also involves a cockpit automation issue. Review the Factual Information chapter (do not review the Analysis, Conclusions, or Recommendations chapters) of the Full Report (not the Summary). Then analyze and evaluate the cockpit automation – human interaction issues that were present in the cockpit prior to the accident. Finally, creatively apply the concepts you learned in modules 6 and 7 for improving aviation safety by improving the liveware and hardware and in this module for mitigating drawbacks to automation and develop a mitigation plan that might have prevented this accident. As always, support your work with a reliable source(s).
Rather than writing a two-page module case study as you have done previously in this course, this time create a PowerPoint presentation of your research for this assignment, just as you would if you were presenting this information to a group of colleagues. Use the “Slide Notes” feature of PowerPoint to create the text of your presentation, similar to the text you have written for those previous module case studies.
There is no specific minimum or maximum number of slides required for this assignment. You are expected to use your judgment in determining how many are necessary to properly and thoroughly cover the subject of your case study. In general, it is better to do more than less. As with any PowerPoint presentation, each slide should contain “bullet” points, not lengthy text. The “Slide Notes” should contain the text of what you would present.
