A preliminary analysis of some human factors as they relate to Command and Control (C2) is performed. A general model of a C2 system is discussed, and a node within that system is isolated for further study. The human factors of informational loading, informational relevancy, and data availability are discussed and then an experiment is performed to ascertain whether any relationships exist between these factors. Comments on the test procedures and the experimental medium used, the WES (Warfare Effectiveness Simulator) wargame, are made in view of possible pitfalls that can be experienced in human factors research. This work should be regarded as a pilot study.
