Abstract : Assistance is provided to Human Factors Engineering (HFE) Navy managers in planning, scheduling, and performing HFE T and E in accordance with the requirements of MIL-H-46855. The emphasis of this guide (as compared to the user's guide--AD-A045 097) is placed on the planning and scheduling necessary to produce the most cost effective total T and E effort. Both formal and technical T and E program requirements are indicated. Basic T and E considerations such as data inputs, level of detail, timing, and applications are described. Types of HFE T and E techniques are indicated and a system for choosing or evaluating particular techniques is briefly described. 33 techniques are listed along with brief descriptions of each. A fold-out chart, which integrates much of the guide content into a Navy manager's program planning decision tree, is provided and may be used as a checklist to assist him in his job.
