Abstract
The proliferation of computer-based monitoring and control systems for underground coal mines has created the need for criteria to be used in evaluating the performance of these systems. This report contains the findings and conclusions of research on the development of test criteria for monitoring and control systems. The design of a test facility for control systems performance measurement of monitoring and control systems is presented. Tests were conducted and the results were used to develop recommended criteria. The implementation of the test facility, test conclusions, and resultant objectives are described in the executive summary. The appendix presents the detailed design of test facility hardware and software.
