  1.  
  2. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Accident Report
    Evidence: "4. CAUSES ... The AAIC determined that the following factors, as a chain or a combination thereof, caused the accident: ... 6. The CAP and F/O did not sufficiently understand the FD mode change and the AP override function. It is considered that unclear descriptions of the AFS (Automatic Flight System) in the FCOM prepared by the aircraft manufacturer contributed to this." (page 4.1)
    Issue: understanding of automation may be inadequate (Issue #105) See Issue details
    Strength: +5
    Aircraft: A300B4-622R
    Equipment: autoflight

  4. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Accident Report
    Evidence: "4. CAUSES ... The AAIC determined that the following factors, as a chain or a combination thereof, caused the accident: 1. The F/O inadvertantly triggered the Go [in sic] lever It is considered that the design of the GO lever contributed to it: normal operation of the thrust lever allows the possibility of an inadvertent triggering of the GO lever." (page 4.1)
    Issue: controls of automation may be poorly designed (Issue #37) See Issue details
    Strength: +5
    Aircraft: A300B4-622R

The CAP and F/O did not sufficiently understand the FD mode change and the AP override function. It is considered that unclear descriptions of the AFS (Automatic Flight System) in the FCOM prepared by the aircraft manufacturer contributed to this." (page 4.1)
    Issue: automation information in manuals may be inadequate (Issue #140) See Issue details

  8. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Accident Report
    Evidence: "It is recognized that the CAP and the F/O completed classroom, simulator and flight training based on the training syllabus prepared by China Airlines in accordance with Taiwanese civil aviation laws. However, it is recognized that this training was not necessarily sufficient to understand the sophisticated and complicated AFS system." (page 3.44)
    Issue: training may be inadequate (Issue #133) See Issue details
    Strength: +4
    Aircraft: A300B4-622R
    Equipment: autoflight

  10. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Accident Report
    Evidence: "3.1.2.2 Analysis of Flight Conditions ... The procedure for performing an approach by disengaging GO AROUND mode once engaged and then engaging LAND mode is unusual in the final phase of approach. However, the fact that the crew did not change modes as intended seems to have been due to their lack of understanding of the Automatic Flight System (AFS)". (page 3.10)
    Issue: understanding of automation may be inadequate (Issue #105) See Issue details
    Strength: +4
    Aircraft: A300B4-600R
    Equipment: autoflight

  12. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Accident Report
    Evidence: "4. CAUSES ... The AAIC determined that the following factors, as a chain or a combination thereof, caused the accident: ... 5. There was no warning and recognition function to alert the crew directly and actively to the onset of the abnormal out-of-trim condition." (page 4.1)
    Issue: behavior of automation may not be apparent (Issue #83) See Issue details
    Strength: +3
