Abstract : Human Engineering (HE) procedures during the system acquisition process are presented for the assistance of various Air Force and industry personnel. The guide is divided into three parts. The first part of the guide is introductory material which scopes the effort and defines HE and human factors engineering (HFE). The second part provides guidance to Air Force and industry management. The third, and last, part is the largest section and it provides assistance to both Air Force and industry persons assigned direct responsibility for HE. The management portion shows current management aspects of the HE process utilizing directives, specifications, regulations, and pamphlets. HE activities are described in general terms of both what should be done and when it should be accomplished. The practical value of HE is discussed in the management section. Various HE program management relationships are suggested also, and the procedure for including HE in the total system effort is presented. The user's portion provides assistance in the areas of HE documentation and requirements that should apply to the program. Program analysis source data suggestions are provided. The planning and scheduling of HE activities are discussed. The required coordination between HE and other disciplines are presented along with the need for coordination with management. Other topics presented include: possible allocation of effort to consultants and/or subcontractors, preparation of the HE portion of the RFP, contractor proposal preparation, proposal evaluation, contractor task accomplishment, and contractor task monitoring.
