Abstract:

The paper presents and elaborates the following general thesis military psychologists will never be more than marginally effective in providing solutions to problems in the areas of personnel, training, operational performance and even job satisfaction unless and until they develop the power, the talent and the technology to have a significant influence on the design of complex military systems and equipment. In todays highly technological military services, the most powerful variable determining what people do, the skills they require, and the environments in which they work is the nature of the weapon systems and support equipment acquired by the services. The paper discusses the technology of human resources engineering which refers to the design of a hardware system with regard to its total human resources impact over the life of the system.
