Modeling Task Time Duration Using the HUNTER Dynamic Human Reliability Analysis Framework
Human Performance Modeling
DescriptionThe Human Unimodel for Nuclear Technology to Enhance Reliability (HUNTER) is simulation software for modeling the human portion of risk. HUNTER is built on a framework that separately models individual, task, and environmental factors. As a dynamic human reliability analysis (HRA) method, it affords advantages over traditional static or worksheet-based HRA approaches, such as the ability to model what-if scenarios and produce outputs beyond human error probabilities. In this paper, a validation was conducted of HUNTER task time estimates vs. empirical data collected for a steam generator tube rupture scenario. The HUNTER model produced using GOMS-HRA task-level primitives yielded timing results very closely aligned to empirical reference data for base and complex conditions, suggesting the tool holds promise for HRA requiring time estimation.
