    Development Center in evaluating current Coast Guard policies and development plans for

    Waterways Management, a "Waterways Management Research and Planning" task plan was

    established as Task Area A in FY '94. The purpose of this task area is to develop decision support

    tools to assist Coast Guard waterways managers in improving the way they meet the waterway users'

    requirements for aids to navigation and waterway services. A Waterways Users research topic was

    established in 1994 and a Baseline Analysis report on Waterway Users was presented in April,

    1995. This analysis defined the waterway users to be "vessels ofvarious types, sizes and uses, not

    the humans operating the vessels", and went on to consider the most important attributes of the

    vessels. The attributes were defined, for the most part, in physical terms (size and number of

    vessels, cargo carried, maneuverability, etc.) but consideration was given to the human dimension

    as well. One of the research tasks proposed in the Baseline Analysis was Task 2-6, User

    Requirements - Human Factors Critical to Assessment of Effectiveness of Coast Guard Aids to

    Navigation and Waterways Services. That Task, in turn, was divided into two subtasks, 2-6.1 Define

    Waterway Users by Navigational Requirements and 2-6.2 Select User Groups for In-Depth Study,

    which were funded in FY '95.
