Abstract: To create effective human-robot systems for manned space exploration missions, there is a need for design methods that can objectively evaluate the effect of human-robot function allocation on the overall system’s performance. This paper proposes a methodology for human-robot function allocation that uses the fast-time computational simulation framework Work Models that Compute. We illustrate our approach through a case study that explores the function allocation design space for an on-orbit maintenance task, demonstrating the method’s ability to address concerns with availability of resources, communication delays and robotic capabilities.
