In a surface wiring task the terminals of electrical components are connected by wires according to a wiring list. This series of experiments examined one such task in a batch assembly environment where production runs are short. The findings show that information theory is a good predictor of performance, that different sources of information within the task are processed in different ways, and that considerable symmetric transfer can be expected between different batches.
