Procedural knowledge concerns the experience of operations which is often expressed in the form of narratives by experts in the field. Declarative knowledge concerns the objects and agents involved in the human-machine system to be designed. The PRODEC method revolves around the acquisition of procedural knowledge from subject matter experts, and elicitation of various properties and attributes of human and machine systems. This elicitation process is iterative and based on creativity, development and validation of prototypes. The PRODEC process can take several iterations to converge. It is strongly recommended to run simulations with humans in the loop to perform this validation, and thus progressively create and maintain appropriate performance models and simulation capabilities.
