Information is currently being produced at a volume and velocity that surpasses the ability of individuals to make full use of it within a given time constraint—a condition known as information overload. Advances in technology, namely the Internet, have exacerbated information overload at all military commands. At the operational level especially, leaders are unable to receive adequate timely information necessary for complex problem solving and decision making. Thus, they satisfice with the limited time and modicum of information they have when making important decisions. The issue addressed in this capstone project is how the explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) community can cope with information overload, especially in complex and turbulent environments when up-to-date information is critical to its mission success. Using a design methodology, members of the EOD community developed a Web 2.0 prototype website to aid in the processing and management of information. The results to date suggest great potential for improving information processing and management when using the website.
