ABSTRACT

 

Human Engineering activities are required throughout the system acquisition process using a Systems Engineering approach. Human Engineering Design guidelines are established to develop effective Human-Machine interfaces, and minimize or eliminate system characteristics that exceed cognitive, physical, or sensory skills; require excessive training or workload for intensive tasks; or result in frequent or critical errors or safety/health hazards.  Human Engineering is a bridge using Human characteristics and performance data to influence design for the operator, maintainer, and other supporters of the system.
