Abstract : The purpose of the information in HEDGE is to expand test capabilities in considering the human element. It will provide a strategy for viewing an item which is undergoing testing from the standpoint of the soldier who must ultimately operate, maintain, or otherwise utilize it. The use of these materials, in addition to standard Task and Design Checklists and Questionnaires, will enable you to tailor your HFE subtest to a specific item. These materials are intended to support test engineers not design engineers. They were designed with specific tasks in mind, i.e., preparing a Test Plan, conducting a test, analyzing and interpreting test data, and generating the test report. They were prepared under the cognizance of the TECOM Human Factors Engineering Directorate.
