Abstract:

The purpose of the report is to cite examples of design problems which are typical of those encountered in consulting work. The manner in which recommendations are derived by reconciling pertinent experimental data with the specific requirements of the equipment is discussed. The cases cited illustrate the various degrees of confidence with which recommendations are made, and point up the areas in which further research is needed. The examples are gathered from studies of equipment designed for use aboard submarines. However, the problems encountered and the method of approach are probably typical of large areas in the field of applied human engineering. Author
