This report describes the development of preliminary requirement specifications for standardized operating controls for roof bolting machines used in underground coal mining. Observations of roof bolting operations and discussions with roof bolter manufacturers coupled with detailed analyses of roof bolter control design specifications were performed. Detailed roof bolter operator task analyses, commonality of control analyses, and classical link analyses were also performed. The results were then used to produce preliminary requirement specifications for standardized controls.
