Abstract

In many aviation and nautical contexts, single manning is common. Some aircraft and some vessels are designed for single manning with no choice. Others can have multiple or single manning, usually depending on such factors as operational requirements, mission objectives, intended human roles, task demands, workload, envisaged mission duration, and environmental conditions.
