The Purple Framework
Has been developed to present single tasks or combinations of
up to four tasks simultaneously to create multi-tasking environments
representative of environments or situations where individuals
are required to attend and respond to several tasks at the same
time. The standard framework consists of eight tasks, all of which
can be presented in any combination up to a maximum of four tasks
per configuration, and at varying levels of workload intensity.
The framework also allows for the manipulation of other parameters
(eg, performance feedback and competition modes) to further customise
the multi-tasking environment.
In addition, Purple Research Solutions can produce customised
modules based upon your specifications. These customised modules
can be integrated into the standard framework and used in combination
with existing modules or to produce bespoke multi-tasking environments
customised to your unique specifications.
The framework utilises a modular design and drag and drop interface
allowing for the easy manipulation of parameters and configuration
of multi-tasking environments. The wide range of options therefore
makes the Purple Research Framework an extremely versatile tool
for use in a variety of settings.
