The MATB-II is frequently used by researchers in human performance, automation, workload, multitasking, and aviation. However, it has historically required researchers to write scripts by hand.
This script generator makes the script-writing process simple. You can easily vary parameters controlling the event density of the different MATB tasks, thus varying workload. Script files produced are validated, helping you avoid common errors.

Currently, a large fraction (but not all) of MATB-II is implemented. Code contributions are welcomed.

This software was developed at, and was open sourced by, The MITRE Corporation.
