Abstract:

Responsibilities, procedures, and methods for carrying out human engineering programs are summarized in this document, which is intended to provide positive management control of the human engineering effort regardless of system size. The Guide answers such questions as What is Human Engineering. Why must Human Engineering be integrated during the design effort to be cost-effective. How should Human Engineering be invoked in contracts and planning documentation. How should Human Engineering be accomplished in the context of real-world constraints. How should contractors products be evaluated. The Human Engineering Guide is not a compendium of detailed data applicable to system development, but it directs the reader to this information via an extensive bibliography.
