Abstract:

Volume I AD603303 outlines in detail the methodology employed in the development of a model for human factors evaluation incorporated in system testing. This volume translates this model into an integrated approach to human factors testing by the OPTEVFOR project officer. It is the intent of this volume to provide a guide for the OPTEVFOR project officer, in order that he may incorporate human factors testing in the conduct of the tests andor evaluations for which he has responsibility. The chapter headings reflect the main subdivisions of these duties, i.e., planting and preparation, preparation of the project plan, conducting the test, evaluating the data, and preparing the final report. In general, the approach is one that recognizes the constraints of testing in the operational environment and attempts to integrate the human factors testing in a manner such that there will be a minimum of added burden. Within the limits imposed by practical considerations, the suggestions and recommendations advanced within will lead to the acquisition of useful human performance dta and, at the same time, reduce the effects of variations in human performance upon the tests of equipment adequacy.
