Abstract : This document presents the final report of the Human Factors Aspects of Reliability program of research. The report contains a review of the literature related to this project, a review of the basic methodology developed for predicting man-machine system reliability, a report of the results of the application of the methodology in Signal Corps R+D programs, and the relationship of the study to present Signal Corps human factors and reliability technical requirements. The procedures for generating task equipment analysis (TEA) data and the means of translating these data to input data for the predictive model are presented. The manner in which the TEA data were converted to input data is presented in the Appendix. Alternative approaches investigated during the course of this study are discussed. The methodological approach and the mathematics utilized in deriving the predictive model and the program for formulation are presented in detail in the report. The manner in which the program output summaries and the detailed program listings of simulation runs can be utilized are also discussed and described. (Author)
