NASA’s Stephen Gibson, Playbook project representative at ESA’s mission control, demonstrates the basic functionality of Playbook a NASA-developed interactive planning viewer that ESA astronaut Andreas Mogensen is set to test in space.
Playbook runs from a web browser and allows a drag and drop interface for an astronaut to move scheduled tasks around with freedom. If they finish early or are running late, they could decide to move an activity to spend more time finishing the experiment at hand and do the next task later. With Playbook, rescheduling is as easy as dragging the task to another area. The system will show any constraints to help the scheduling.
