I'm trying to get some survey / feedbacks :
If there's occasional oversights made by computer operators working on rotating shifts,
esp when a number of typing (sending / replying emails, compilation of duties / job logs,
and Unix command-line operations) tasks are involved, would it help if they pick up typing.
I thought if they are equipped with typing skills (like those of secretaries who type fast
with all 10 fingers), it would help focus better when typing is second nature to them.
Agree or Disagree?
I just felt if a person has to keep looking at keyboard frequently, it would drain and strain
the person that it compromises a computer operator to an extent. Agree or disagree?
Some of the mistakes / shortcomings could be :
a) sending email to the wrong persons or missed certain people from email distributions
b) typing the command wrongly (eg: "tar cvf target.tar source" was mistyped as
"tar cvf source.tar target"
c) even to the extent of copy & paste wrongly (though this is more of mouse action
than keyboard action but I thought the lack of typing skill distracted the person to
d) loss of productivity (delay in responding to emails & taking longer to prepare jobs
or duties summary for the day / shift he has done which has more chance of
being incomplete / inaccurate)
Trying to justify for computer operators to be equipped with typing skills
