Abstract
Stress-related effects in the assessment of synthetic-work performance are discussed in a presentation to the 1981 International Conference on Machine Pacing and Occupational Stress. The synthetic work methodology, which provides for the measurement of sustained time shared performances in a laboratory based synthetic job, is described. Major results from previous investigations using the synthetic work methodology of the effects of work rest schedules, sleep loss, continuous work, and infectious diseases are described emphasizing response to stress. Research conclusions are related to future stress research.
