The MMS model presented in ths paper describes rather detailed human control of a dynamic system. The model is an integration and extension of previously developped (validated) (sub-)models. The model describes human control of a dynamic system, involving intermittent control behavior during finite time intervals and, therefore, decision making and planning and continuous regulating. Another central element is that the control is based on the perceived visual information from instruments and the outside world. Observing this visual scene is a complex process (e.g. involving preview) and intimately related to the control task. A model for visual scanning renders a useful insight in display- and navigational questions.
