Although there are abundant theoretical frameworks for diagnosis in the laboratory or in the field, they present serious limitations in Dynamic Environment Supervision (DES).

A functional analysis of the supervisory activity is delineated that stresses the link between diagnosis and overall operator activity (especially decision-making). The main theoretical ...
